Last week, we posted about the launch of an online local fiscal analysis tool, available at the website of the North Carolina State Treasurer. This site utilizes the financial analysis tools developed a few years ago by the UNC School of Government and is designed to help any local jurisdiction in the state analyze and compare its fiscal condition over time and with benchmarks based on other jurisdictions. The UNC School of Government has now scheduled a series of workshops for local government staff and officials to attend to learn how they can effectively use this new resource.
The workshop introduces the financial condition model being used by North Carolina local officials to analyze the fiscal strength of their organizations. Participants will learn how to interpret and communicate their data and how the model can be used to make more informed policy decisions in local government.
Workshops will last a full day and be held on the following dates and locations across North Carolina:
September 30, 2010 – Hilton Garden Inn, Kitty Hawk
October 20, 2010 – Sheraton Imperial, Research Triangle Park
October 28, 2010 – Embassy Suites, Winston-Salem
November 4, 2010 – Biltmore Doubletree, Asheville
November 18, 2010 – Embassy Suites, Concord
December 9, 2010 – Hilton Riverside, Wilmington
Registration for each workshop is $225 per person. Registration is available online. If you have any questions, please contact Deidre Lewis, Program Manager (Click to call, or call 919-966-4171).
