Using Technology to Deliver Financial Assistance Remotely
With today’s financial constraints, driving to our community projects, some of which can be hundreds of miles away, isn’t always feasible. So, thanks to ever-evolving technology and a motivated City Clerk, Bonnie Bishop of Randalia, IA, we were able to connect via webinar to review Randalia’s annual financial reports that are due to USDA Rural Development for the city’s existing wastewater loan. I simply uploaded the reports into LiveMeeting, invited Bonnie, and we were able to review the reports as if we were sitting there together. Thanks to technology we saved time and money, and Randalia is now current on their USDA Rural Development reports. How are you using technology to benefit your organization?
