Easier Said than Done: Attracting and Retaining Public Finance Talent in the New World of Work

Conference Homepage

As outlined in Meeting Demand for State and Local Public Finance Jobs, a report released in Fall 2022 by GFOA and Lightcast, demand for state and local public finance officers is outstripping the current supply of workers in our sector. To address this phenomenon, governments need to adapt and find creative ways to attract new workers and retain existing ones. At this session, hear from local government leaders about what they are doing to address this problem and get some ideas to try in your own organization.
