Academy Core Session: County Financial Management

The budget and other financial documents play a significant role in setting priorities and implementing sound management practices. To gain a better understanding of these documents and how to use them effectively, attend the Academy Core session titled “County Financial Management” to be held during the MACo Summer Conference. Session details are below.

Description: A challenge faced by new and veteran county officials is understanding and using the government budget process, the Comprehensive Annual Financial Report, and other financial documents effectively as tools for setting priorities and managing the government while maintaining the fiscal integrity of the jurisdiction. Fiscal management can be infused with economic assumptions, technical jargon, and a process that seems foreign to the uninitiated. In this class, veteran public administrators discuss the budget process and financial reporting, as well as giving practical tips for county officials.

Speakers: Ted Zaleski, Director, Department of Management and Budget, Carroll County

Moderator: The Honorable Laura Price, Council Vice President, Talbot County

Date/Time: Wednesday, August 12, 2015; 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm
