XLerant CEO to Co-Present With Finance Executives From John A. Logan College and San Juan College at CCBO Annual International Conference in San Antonio

Ted Dacko to Present With Stacy Buckingham and Steve Miller on the "10 Biggest Mistakes in Higher Education Budgeting"

STAMFORD, CT--(Marketwired - September 18, 2014) - XLerant Inc.,, the leading provider of SaaS cloud-based budgeting software and creator of BudgetPak, today announced that CEO Ted Dacko will co-present at CCBO's Annual International Conference with Stacy Buckingham, Dean for Financial Operations from John A. Logan College and Steve Miller, Assistant Controller from San Juan College. Dacko, Buckingham and Miller will be presenting an educational session entitled, "10 Biggest Mistakes in Higher Education Budgeting" at this premier event for leaders in Community College institutions.

"Budgeting is gaining significant importance as community colleges try to improve and better tune their financial performance. Providing for a well-thought out and justified plan -- that ties to the strategy of the institution and is owned by faculty and staff -- is the key goal that most institutions are trying to achieve," says Dacko. "But there are common mistakes around the budget process that can impact success for these institutions."

While Dacko will present an overview of these ten common mistakes, and how community colleges can avoid them and achieve budgets that better align to the college President's strategic plan -- Buckingham and Miller will share best practices and expertise gained from hands-on experiences at their leading community colleges. Says Dacko: "We hope that at the end of this session financial leaders at Community Colleges across the nation will see first-hand the value of a new approach to budgeting, and how that benefits not just their finance teams and leadership -- but their entire institution."

The CCBO Annual International Conference will be held on September 20th through September 23rd at the Wyndham San Antonio Riverwalk.
