The 2018 Budget Workshops are now complete.
Thank you to all who registered and attended the workshops – we had great participation and discussion. For those of you who were not able to attend, we look forward to your attendance next year.
If you were wanting to attend a workshop and did not receive a notification, please be sure to register with our email notification system. In addition, we will continue to send out the flyers announcing the workshops to counties, cities, and CPA firms. We are tentatively planning for the 2019 workshops to occur in May, so start watching your mail and email for notification in late February/early March of 2019.
For those unable to attend or those wishing to review the information presented, please find attached below the PowerPoint presentation used at the workshops, the Legislative Update document, the group exercises used at the workshops, and the completed computations for the group exercises.
