Want to cultivate financial resilience in your city? Join us on May 24!
We’re excited to announce that the first of our revamped 2019 workshops will be held in League City, Texas! If you're in city government and you're near Houston—and if you lose sleep over whether your city can continue to fund basic services (not to mention grow stronger & more resilient, economically and otherwise)—we’d love for you to join us for the day on Friday, May 24!
Early registration ($100) ends on Friday, April 19!
The one-day workshop helps city leaders diagnose, understand, and explain their city’s financial situation—and get a clear idea of how to close the resource gap in an equitable and citizen-focused way.
Here’s what you’ll take away:
Learn why so many cities end up with more infrastructure and service needs than they can pay for, why prosperity doesn’t seem to last, and the ways your role specifically forms part of the solution.
Understand how to use the common language of fiscal resilience to frame development discussions—and how the tools of fiscal analysis can help inform decisions around land use, zoning, growth management, infrastructure, and economic development.
Learn how other cities have incentivized citizens to contribute their own time, talent, and treasure to making their neighborhoods more resilient and people-friendly.
Is this for you?
We’re an interdisciplinary bunch, ourselves, and we have designed this workshop (and all of our workshops) to bring together folks from across all the various roles, departments, and disciplines within municipal government. Whether you are a staff member (planning, public works, engineering, etc!), city manager, finance officer, elected official, economic development person… we want you to be in the room!
Learn more about the workshop at the League City workshop page.
Not in the Houston area but still interested in a workshop?
Cool! We’re still filling out our 2019 workshops calendar. If you’d like to bring us to your city for a workshop, head on over to our Workshops page to learn more about them, and then reach out to us to see about scheduling one!
