Summer Conference Draft Agenda!

Good Afternoon Budgeteers!
We are a MONTH away from conference!  I can smell that salt air already! A draft agenda for the conference can be found here.
Agenda/Session Highlights
We are excited to share a draft agenda for conference (attached).  As you can see our moderators have been working hard for the past few months and have helped put together an exciting and informative agenda.   If you are interested in signing up for the pre-conference session on Strategic planning please use this link and register directly with the School of Government.

We are still looking for a few conference volunteers including someone to assist with budget feud.  Dr. Afonso has graciously agreed to host again this conference but she is looking for a volunteer to train during the summer conference, to take over this extremely fun activity for this winter’s conference.
Other volunteer duties where we need some help are below, email Heather to sign up!
  • Dinner Reservations - seeking 3-4 people each for Wednesday and Thursday nights to organize dinner groups. This involves identifying a restaurant, making a reservation and helping coordinate a group of attendees to fill that reservation (making sure everyone has a ride, checking the sign-up list and adjusting the reservation as needed, etc.)
  • Registration Desk - we need 6-8 friendly faces to help welcome attendees, speakers and sponsors to the conference, hand out nametags, and sell Scholarship raffle tickets. Each person would be assigned 1-2 shifts split between Wednesday and Friday. 
  • Recap Writers - a chance to stretch your creative side and have a spotlight on our website! Tell us the story of one or more sessions at the conference. What takeaways stayed with you on the drive home? What was the most interesting thing you learned? How did your time with colleagues leave you feeling about the local gov budgeting profession? We want to hear from you! Check out past recaps on our website. 
Because rooms are hard to come by, if you need to cancel your room for any reason please let the conference organizers know and we can assist in transferring your room to someone else attending conference. 
Looking forward to seeing everyone soon!
