The new world of budgets and policies: Excerpt from IWCE 2020 panel discussion
Local government leaders are still reeling from the financial impacts of the COVID-19 outbreak, and struggling to figure out where to go from here.
Speaking with Teryn Zmuda, chief economist at the National League of Cities; Scott Huizenga, director of the office of management and budget for San Antonio, Texas; Liz Masson, a partner at the Hanson Bridges law firm specializing in public sector employee benefits; and Scott Peterson, vice president of U.S. tax policy and government relations at Avalara, American City & County Editor Derek Prall leads a discussion on the impacts of the global health crisis on local government budgets, how communities responded, and how state, county and local agencies can better respond to the next big threat for IWCE’s 2020 virtual conference.
The excerpt above leads to a nearly 45 minute round table on these topics and more. Watch the full panel discussion and others like it at IWCE’s virtual event on Monday, Aug. 24 through Thursday, Aug. 27 by registering now. Basic packages start at $99; a premium package costs $599.
