CALN Project Manager

On Thursday, July 18 from Noon to 1:30, CALN is hosting a Budget Training for school board members. We will be bringing in Aaron Beaulieu to discuss how your districts spend taxpayer money and train you in the art of budgeting


Are you bored over budgets? Confused about what to look for or how to spend? You’ll be able to serve your district much more effectively once you figure out the finances!  

The training will cover “What you need to know, what you should know and what you don’t know about school budgets – how to budget smarter and what key indicators board members should be looking for. How to make the numbers make sense.” ~ Aaron Beaulieu 

This session is completely free to those who RSVP in advance. Lunch will also be provided to those who attend in person. Fill out this form to secure a spot

The training will be held in Raleigh, North Carolina. The address will be provided to those who RSVP as in person guests. Zoom will also be available for those who cannot make it to Raleigh.
