Dallas/Fort Worth Chapter Meeting

Tuesday, July 25, 2017 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am



Improving Communication in Large or Decentralized Organizations*

Peter James, Grant Accounting Supervisor, City of Fort Worth, TX

Building a successful grant organization can be a challenge when you are part of a large or decentralized organization. If you are trying to implement standardized best practices across such an organization, does the phrase “herding cats” ring a bell? We will explore using a roundtable setting to increase compliance by improving communication and promoting the sharing of best practices. Keys to success: whom to include, tone, setting, agenda, and format.

Learning Objectives

  • Build a successful grant organization
  • Implement best practice across the organization
  • Increase grant compliance by improving communication and promote sharing of best practices

*This training was presented at the 2017 NGMA Annual Grants Training.
