COG Programs: Financial Management Basics

The Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments (COG) Institute for Regional Excellence (IRE) in partnership with GW-CEPL are offering 1- and 2-day leadership training courses in finance, leadership, and strategic thinking.  

The 2-day class "Financial Management Basics for Non-Financial Managers" will enable participants to develop literacy in governmental financial practices, such as budgeting and forecasting, capital spending, performance-based financial management, and other best practices, all in the context of effective public sector management. 
 
Participants will also have the opportunity to read and dissect government budgets at the departmental, agency, and jurisdictional levels, and be exposed to practical strategies for preparing budgets that provide a baseline for effective management in public sector organizations.
 
Cost: $1,100 per person (without the discount)
