Community Education Finance and Financial Management –Maintaining Integrity and Viability
Presented by Bob Meyer,  former MCEA Executive Director

CE finance and financial management is becoming increasingly complex. CE Directors, Coordinators, Managers and Supervisors are coping with numerous challenges, including changes in funding formulas, continuous balancing of multiple revenue sources, generating new revenues and protecting existing revenues in CE.

Three separate financial management sessions are being offered with a follow-up clinic for technical assistance concluding the last session. These workshops will include various materials, examples and useful tools and information.
