WebEx Online Class

June 22-23 | 9:00 am – 12:00 pm

Instructor:  Scott Luecal

Limited to 40 Attendees

Registration Deadline: June 15, 2020


This course is designed to help directors understand the role of the board in financial planning, including identifying the basic documents used in financial planning and reporting, assessing the issues that drive financial decisions, balancing competing goals, and taking responsibility to monitor and evaluate results.

NRECA has tailored this online training to be a rich educational experience that you can participate in without travel. A greater focus will be on the instructor’s expertise and experience while teaching the course content. Questions and comments are welcome and managed in a way that supports collaboration and interaction and avoids having one person speak over another.

The course will be divided into two sessions and delivered over two consecutive days. You must participate in both sessions to earn course credit.
