Webinar - The Top 10 Excel Skills Every Government

April 19, 2021

2:00-3:40 p.m. EST (2 CPE)

[Registration Coming Soon]

Government Financial Managers have to keep track of and report on data in a wide variety of formats to a diverse audience (elected officials, grantors, creditors, department heads, and the general public, just to name a few!) So, how do we make one set of books speak to so many different user needs? For many of us, the answer is the universal language of business: Microsoft Excel. Learn the top ten skills that every government financial manager needs to know to efficiently and effectively cut through the data, find the answer, and present it in the right format. Lead by AGA West Michigan’s very own Excel master, Stephen W. Blann, this webinar will include practical, real-life examples of financial reporting challenges faced by local governments and how to solve them in Excel. Sample files will be provided so you can follow along from your own PC.
