Webinar Series Description

Basic book keeping and financial management acumen is necessary to recognize patterns and key ratios that enable food hub operators to make smarter, more effective operational decisions. Participants in this beginner-friendly, multi-part financial webinar series, led by representatives from Farm Credit, will learn how to effectively manage, format and attribute financial reports, including the common chart of accounts, balance sheets, profit and loss statements, and cash flow statements.   Using examples gleaned from Farm Credit’s extensive experience in regional food systems, this series will explore the theory and practice of financial record keeping as applied to effective food business management.

There will be 5 short (20-30 min.) Tuesday webinars, one each week for five consecutive weeks. Moreover, the Thursday following each webinar there will be a 1-hour follow-up “office hours” session where you are free to bring all of your questions – as general or specific as you would like. (NB: 1. There is no office hours session after the first webinar 2. The office hours following the final webinar is on a Wednesday.)

Please join us for all sessions to get the most of this opportunity. If you do have to miss a session or two, we will be posting all recordings to this page as they are aired so you can catch up.

There is great power in properly maintained and used financial records. This webinar series is key to unlocking that power.
