19th Annual

School Finance Conference

for Businesses

Virtual Event

Thursday, January 14, 2021


  Conference Agenda 


The 19th Annual School Finance Conference for Businesses is going virtual!

Now more than ever it is important for you to stay current on State policy goals and laws that will impact your work in the school construction industry. This one-day event features a streamlined agenda that allows you to maximize participation and engagement from the comfort of your own home office.

The 2021 Conference will examine the dramatic effect of the COVID-19 global pandemic on the FY 2020-21 state budget, and review the Governor’s 2021-22 state budget proposal and potential impacts to K-12 and community colleges. The November election could have significant effects on State and Federal policy priorities; we’ll debrief election results and anticipate the impacts in the coming year.

The Conference will feature hot topics in financial markets and an exploration of the current school construction market. We will discuss California K-12 capital outlay issues and prospects for a future state school bond.

The discussions will be interactive, allowing you to connect directly with speakers and other attendees, and the lunch hour will provide dedicated networking time so that you can engage directly with fellow attendees.

Registration fees are approximately 50% less than our typical in-person event, in recognition of reduced costs to operate this event virtually. This means you receive an excellent value while still arming yourself with vital policy, budgetary, and economic information and analysis, helping you stay nimble and competitive during these uncertain times.

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!
