EFCN Hosts Key Financial Indicators Webinar

On April 14, ASDWA participated in a webinar about Key Financial Indicators for water systems.  The hour long web event was hosted by the Environmental Finance Center Network (EFCN) as part of their training and outreach work under EPA’s competitive award process. This particular webinar was facilitated by the EFC at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.

If you were not able to participate in the event but really need to know the basics of sound financial management – we have some good news for you.  As part of the webinar, EFCN referenced a tool provided by the Water Research Foundation called “Water Clips” that explained financial benchmarking for water utilities.  This 11 minute video is the financial management equivalent of (depending on how old you are) the old Classic Comics version of Ivanhoe or the Cliff Notes summary of War and Peace or, for those of you much younger than I am, a Wikipedia description of almost anything.  The content is excellent, the explanations are clear, and the graphics are very helpful.
