Bring your leadership team to Washington DC, May 12-13, 2011 to develop the knowledge and skills to effectively craft strategies that support both organizational health and mission achievement. The NAS Finance seminar will focus your team on how to use finance as a critical management and decision-making tool. It will develop your team’s collective understanding of how your decisions impact the overall health of your organization both now and going forward.
Your team will develop an understanding of the relationships between traditional financial concepts such as revenue and cost and your ability to achieve your mission. Building on this foundation, you’ll learn to predict how your decisions about resources impact the health of your whole organization – programs and finances. Your team will also develop a shared language for articulating the risks and benefits of the decisions you each make so you can communicate more clearly about your decision-making and expected outcomes.
All participating organizations will receive an Organization Fellowship covering the full tuition for a team and must apply to attend. We encourage the inclusion of all senior staff or those who manage budgets. Up to $600 per person will be available as travel support to all participants from outside the DC metropolitan area to help with the cost of travel and lodging.
