Now is the time to register for the 2020 School Finance Conference for Businesses!

This is an eventful time to work in the school construction industry; staying current on State policy goals and laws will enhance the effectiveness of your business.

The 2020 Conference will feature an in-depth discussion of AB 48, the March 2020 State School Bond, including prognosis for passage, and the funding opportunities created by the bond. We will also explore the 2020-21 budget proposals and demographics for both K-12 schools and community colleges.

In addition to state funding opportunities, the Conference will feature hot topics in financial markets, prominent legal issues and pertinent legislation. New this year will be conversations about school construction cost escalation and housing policy for both students and the public workforce.

This Conference will arm you with vital policy, budgetary and economic information and analysis.

In addition to the information you receive at the Conference, all attendees are automatically signed up to receive key updates throughout the year on the State Budget, school bonds, Controller’s reports, and other hot topics – a great value you will benefit from all year long!
