MWH is excited to welcome you back in person for the 2022 Murdoch, Walrath & Holmes School Finance Conference for Businesses! We will be returning to beautiful, warm Palm Springs, at the Kimpton Rowan Hotel on January 17-18, 2022.

The past 24 months have been a rollercoaster of economic news, federal actions, and state revenues. All of these have had major impacts on California school finance and the businesses doing business with schools. We will talk about whether this rollercoaster can be expected to continue in 2022 and 2023.

How will schools start planning their facility programs and operational programs during this time of, we hope, greater certainty? While more is certain than in the past two years, there is still less certainty than the time before – the new normal is still being determined.

The 2022 School Finance Conference for Businesses will have the latest information you need on proposed state funding, expected federal funding, changes in enrollment, potential changes in the state School Facility Program, new litigation and more topics related to school business for businesses.

Now is the time to register and make your hotel reservation for the in-person 2022 School Finance Conference!

In addition to the information you will 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!
