Planning and Budgeting Forum Call for Presentations
Do you have expert knowledge and practical wisdom to share on higher education accounting issues? NACUBO invites you to submit a proposal to present at the 2013 Planning and Budgeting Forum, being held September 16-17, 2013 in Atlanta, GA.
We are reserving sessions for campus presentations highlighting issues or topics of concern to budgeting and financial management professionals at colleges and universities. Submissions may come from campus administrators or members of the corporate community.
We are seeing presentations on (but not limited to) the following topics:
- Space utilization
- Cost of education
- Responsibility centered management
- Enrollment management and tuition discounting
- Advancement and development
- Health care reform implementation
- Deferred maintenance
- Strategic planning and budgeting
- Budgeting systems
- Alternate revenue sources
In selecting presentations for the Planning and Budgeting Forum, the program committee will be evaluating sessions best suited to the needs of the target audience. Some key considerations as you prepare your proposal:
- Include as much detail as possible about the presentation.
- Include 2-3 learning objectives or audience takeaways
- Gear the presentation towards an audience at the intermediate to advanced level of understanding, rather than basic treatments or overviews
Guidelines for Submission
