Creating an Effective Budget
by Chrissy Jackson
Every community should have a budget. It should be created annually, in the late summer and fall of the preceding year for which it will be effective.
This handbook walks you through the creation process. Where do you start in gathering information? What should your numbers be compared to for authenticity? How often should you analyze actual performance and what benchmarks really tell the story about the financial growth of your community? Why should you refer back to your budget at the end of a year? Why should you keep them?
The real story about budgets - it's here for you!
