We want this conference to be the best professional development for your entire team from policy researchers to communications officers to executive directors. We promise it will be fun with opportunities for team bonding too.

We are happy to announce that Thomas Ross, president of The Volcker Alliance, will be our keynote speaker hitting on the hot topic of state government budgets. Take a look at our feature read this month from the Volcker Alliance. Within the report, readers can find interactive report cards evaluating individual states and their budgets.
