Budgeting Best Practices - Communicating the Budget

Communicating clearly is one of the best ways a local government can build trust with its constituents and, in doing so, strengthen its financial foundation. Unfortunately, though, many governments present their budget and financial information without translating it for the average citizen. At best, these documents bore citizens; at worst, they frustrate them. Government staff lament that no one reads them, and the cycle continues. Break out of your rut with this course, which examines the different ways governments can communicate financial and budgetary information more meaningfully to their respective communities. Going beyond simply using the traditional budget document, attendees will learn to make effective budget presentations, develop budget websites and dashboards, and integrate social media into their communication strategies.
