  • Live Webinar: Beyond the Spreadsheet: Finance and Organizational Priorities

    Contains 1 Component(s) Includes a Live Event on 12/12/2019 at 3:00 PM (EST)

    DEC. 12, 2019 | 3 - 4:15 PM EST | Beyond the Spreadsheet: Finance and Organizational Priorities is an AASLH continuing education event presented by speaker Becky Beaulieu on December 12, 2019. This webinar will help participants learn to identify financial priorities as they relate to institutional needs and goals. This webinar is part of the StEPs Lab series of online continuing education offered to both StEPs program participants and all others interested in the topic of financial management. This is StEPs Lab 19.

    Many of us recognize the utility of financial management, but struggle with how to best engage it with other organizational activities like strategic planning, operational needs related to programming and community engagement, messaging, and preparation for institutional change. This webinar helps participants foresee and tackle challenges of incohesive financial planning, such as fragmentation within the institution (the “silo effect”), lack of proper fundraising strategy, and potentially weak and even uncompliant organizational management.

    In this 75-minute webinar, instructor Becky Beaulieu, author of Financial Fundamentals for Historic House Museums (Rowman & Littlefield, 2017) will help participants learn to identify financial priorities as they relate to institutional needs and goals. She will also address building buy-in amongst internal and external stakeholders to best position your organization for financial stability and strong partnerships.

    This webinar is designed for participants of all levels, including staff, volunteers, and board members.
