Session materials from “Own your Books!: Demystifying Financial Planning & Cultivating Democratic Engagement,” presented by Devin Case-Ruchala at NASCO Institute 2016.
Ever voted on a house budget not knowing what exactly you were voting on or why? Feel like financial management is too boring to care about or too complex to understand? Does your co-op need a basic financial plan but don’t know where to start? This session seeks to demystify the financial planning and management process in a creative and engaging combination of activity and dialogue. The goal is to empower co-op members with the knowledge to make informed decisions about their co-op’s finances and provide tools & resources for financial planning and management. No prior knowledge required; all skill levels are invited to participate.
