Over the past year, the Committee on Economic Development and Capital Planning (CEDCP) has been reviewing best practice statements. CEDCP has 25 members, four advisors, two ex-officio members, and two GFOA staff liaisons. Kimberly Olivares, chief performance officer for the City of Austin, Texas, is the committee’s chair, and Jason Greene, finance director for the City of Surfside, Florida, is the vice-chair. Committee members come from a broad range of governments including cities, counties, states, school districts, higher education, and other special purpose districts. The diversity of experiences and organizations provides a well-rounded perspective in developing guidance for GFOA members and beyond and also makes for interesting discussion at the committee’s meetings. This article provides an update on the Committee's work.
