As an office manager or administrative assistant, you know the ins-and-outs of your department/program like nobody else — and that makes you the perfect person to put together your budget. Your director is counting on you to prepare a realistic budget that he or she can approve with few or no changes and present to tribal council or to funders. Are you ready to step up to the challenge?
Preparing a successful budget for a tribe is as much an art as it is a science. In this important class you’ll learn how to compile the data and present it to your audience effectively. We’ll help you understand which financial documents you need to analyze and where to get them, how to watch for trends in your department, what cuff accounting is and how to use it effectively, and how to monitor a budget and handle budget variance, in addition to walking you step-by-step through how to actually assemble the budget. You’ll get plenty of hands-on practice budgeting for different circumstances and situations, experience reading revenue and expenditure reports, and guidance on dissecting general ledger transaction lists line by line. Plus you’ll learn how to prepare a compelling budget presentation or narrative that’s easy for funders, program/department directors and tribal council to understand.
