Although 2020 has been tumultuous, we are happy to note that the process of applying for and selecting new committee members continued this year. GFOA President Marion Gee selected new committee members in September and charged them with creating and enhancing best practices and advisories to make sure they’re applicable even in our new normal.
Because this year is different—in a million different ways—we will have a different type of Washington Meeting, as well. This year we will “zoom-in” to many of the same meetings which will likely include meetings with staff of FEMA, the United States Treasury, Homeland Security, and the US Secret Service (to name a few). Committee members continue to play a pivotal role in our relationship with our federal partners, and we will continue to provide those opportunities to our committee members in 2021.
