Business Administrators Forum
The Business Administrators Forum is designed to create a means to share information, exchange ideas, and to foster and maintain an informed and trained campus community on Finance & Administration related processes.
Members of this group benefit from a strong sense of community that is trained on how to do business at Wake Forest, shared knowledge between both the academic and administrative areas, cross-departmental view points leading to improved decision making and operational efficiencies, opportunities to discuss the alignment of business processes with university goals, and a designated information source for Finance and Administration from their area.
The role of a Business Administrator’s Forum member is to support their department’s finance processes, champion/advocate initiatives, and educate their department on finance processes.
For additional information about this group you may contact Sharon Anderson at firstname.lastname@example.org or 336-758-4311.
