3rd Annual Better Budgeting - Aligned with Community

In its simplest form, a budget is a plan of allocating resources to meet goals. Best practice in developing a budget requires that organizations first identify priorities, establish goals, consider performance data, and create a process for decision making that will align spending to best achieve results. However, for anyone that has ever been through a government budget process, this is much easier said than done. This session will provide practical guidance for governments looking to improve their budget by more closely aligning the budget to community priorities. Speakers will discuss how to best engage the public in a priority setting, which methods of citizen participation are most effective, how to structure programs to align with priorities, tools to help decision makers consider priorities, how to best evaluate if outcomes are being achieved, and how to communicate key budget messages with elected officials, departments, and the public.
