Coronavirus: ICMA Community Conversations

As each day passes, the likelihood of a severe recession increases due to the coronavirus pandemic. However, most current budget and finance officers have not had to contend with deep downturns over the past decade.

This webinar will cover the first principles of cutback budgeting, lessons from real-world experience during the Great Recession, and exploration of how simulation software can be used to frame the fact-based trade-off discussions your public entity will need to have, both internally and externally, in the near future. Case studies from local governments of all sizes will be profiled to show how online public engagement can help provide essential feedback to governments making these difficult choices.
