Zoom Towns: The Impact of Remote Work on Our Communities


With the onset of COVID-19 some employees, now working remotely, opted to move out of large urban metros areas into smaller towns. This migration led to a financial impact in both areas. How did these small towns address a large and unplanned demand for service? What was the impact on tax revenues, property values, and the economy? Speakers will also explore what this means for those areas if the trend continues. Going forward, all finance officers can learn form these experiences and help you be better prepared for the next large change in your community.
