Overview of GFOA's "Rethinking" Initiatives

Conference Homepage

Status quo can be a powerful force in state and local government. However, government revenue structures are largely based on assumptions that no longer hold today due to digitization, globalization, demography, political changes, and other trends, which will continue to threaten to be threats to efficiencies, sustainability, and fairness. Attend this session to hear about GFOA's efforts to "rethink" both revenue systems and the overall budget with an eye toward the future. These interactive projects have many opportunities for member engagement and offer resources to help finance officers consider employing some new tactics to solve problems in your own community.
