Fiscal Operations and the Interrelationship with Program Operations


Too often, finance staff are siloed from other departments. This divide is deepened when staff do not have a clear understanding of each other's roles and the impact each department has on achieving the organization's mission and vision. 


MCTAC's latest series, Fiscal Operations and the Interrelationship with Program Operations, explores how to develop a robust finance department and the relationships between an agency's fiscal infrastructure and the development of a business plan, strategic planning, executive leadership, and key operational and programmatic functions.


Through a series of three pre-recorded webinars, you will set your own learning pace before joining a final live office hour where you can bring your questions, ideas, and shared experiences around this subject area.
