185: Reimagining Budget & Planning — EACUBO 2017 Annual Meeting

Click play above to listen to the panel with presentation visuals.

Once again this year, EACUBO and its members outdid themselves in building and hosting the 2017 Annual Meeting in Pittsburgh. As a part of the event, Howard Teibel was asked to facilitate a panel of three esteemed panelists for a conversation on reimagining budget and planning. But that title hardly captures where the discussion ultimately went.

The challenges facing finance leaders are many, but above and beyond the day-to-day shuffle of administration, how do leaders across the institution stay present in the vision and the mission of the institution? How do you find inspiration in a vision of future success, and how do you muster the courage to get there? This panel — and engaged audience — focuses on positive change for moving institutions forward. 

Panelists J.J. Davis, SVP for Administration and Finance for George Mason University; Mike Gower, EVP Finance, Administration, and Treasurer for Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey; and Robert Goldberg, Chief Operating Officer for Barnard College share their insights and deeply personal experiences in leading their institutions in operations and planning. 

Special thanks to EACUBO and its members for planning and holding the 2017 Annual Meeting, including this session, and for making this recording available to our audience to share.
