)-- The Knowledge Group/The Knowledge Congress Live Webcast Series, the leading producer of regulatory focused webcasts, announced today that it has scheduled a live webcast on “Practical Solutions to The State Budget Crisis in 2010”. This two-hour event is scheduled on Wednesday, January 13, 2010, at 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM ET.
As a result of the economic crisis, State Budget Officers are grappling with very tough conditions. Tax revenue is down, unemployment is up, and there’s a commercial real-estate bubble that is just about to burst. In an effort to close budget gaps in excess of hundreds of millions of dollars, many states have taken dramatic actions including issuing IOUs, cutting services, mandating unpaid furloughs, instituting hiring freezes, raising healthcare co-pays, asking for voluntary givebacks, and much more. Many governors have been quoted as saying that nothing is off limits in terms of what can be cut.
This live webcast aims to help State Budget Officers, finance, legal professionals, analysts, economists and industry participants by offering practical guidance in critical areas concerning the budget crisis. During this live two hour webcast, our panel of key thought leaders and experts will conduct an end-to-end discussion on the most critical issues including:
- Comparing and contrasting the various state “Recovery Plans”
- How to make the most of reduced resources
- Fewer staff to share the load
- Less money to fund services
- Making budget cuts in areas with the least possible impact on services
- How to work strategically with local governments
- Accounting considerations
- Policy and legal strategy
- Up-to-the-minute regulatory updates
Upon conclusion of the prepared material, the audience will be invited to participate in a live question and answer session, where they will have to interact directly with the distinguished panel of experts.
There’s no question about it: 2010 is going to be a challenging year for most, and everyone agrees that the time to act is now. Practical Solutions to The State Budget Crisis in 2010 Live Webcast will help you understand and manage the critical issues surrounding your state’s budget crisis. Join this webcast and the expertise gained will help you become a keys person in your state’s financial recovery efforts. Advanced registration is recommended as space for this course is limited.
