The "New Wave" of Local Government 2014 annual conference is brought to you by the Center for Priority Based Budgeting (CPBB) in partnership with the International City/County Management Association (ICMA), the Alliance for Innovation (AFI), Emerging Local Government Leaders (ELGL) and the National League of Cities (NLC).
The ICMA "Leading Practice" of Priority Based Budgeting is fundamentally changing the way local governments are approaching resource allocation, community partnerships, transparency in financial management and literacy, credit rating management, and our very understanding of the modern role of pro-active governance.
A Revolution In How Communities Leverage Resources
Building upon the excitement and enthusiasm from the CPBB 2013 "Summit of Leading Practices" Annual Conference, we'll be delivering even more success driven initiatives from the CPBB, our partners and your local government practitioner peers that will provide proven strategies designed to catapult your organization into the innovation stratosphere! REGISTER HERE! Listen to CPBB Co-founder Chris Fabian provide a 2014 CPBB conference overview in this Video Espresso Blast!
For over five-years, communities across the US and Canada have been implementing and evolving our scalable and replicable core fiscal and economic development concepts, and the outcomes have been nothing short of revolutionary! We are living and working in some of the most extraordinary times in the history of local governance! Thrust into a mode of survival during the Great Recession, communities were forced to re-imagine the very role of local government – what authors Bruce Katz and Jennifer Bradley have coined as “The Metropolitan Revolution.”
As we’ve seen through the nearly 70 communities who have leveraged their pioneering and courageous work in Priority Based Budgeting to thrive in this revolution, what we recognize today is something even more profound – it’s evolution. The inspiration behind this revolution is the theme of this year’s 2014 Annual Priority Based Budgeting Conference – A Revolution in how Communities Leverage Resources in this “New Wave” of Local Government - and it is our most important initiative to date!
The CPBB’s 3rd annual conference will focus on:
•User Group Experience – with a tipping point of communities having excelled in bringing Priority Based Budgeting to life, with many communities now several years into their evolving implementation, and the first academic research on the measureable outcomes of PBB, it’s time to share the lessons learned. This year’s conference will bring together the leading practitioners in PBB to share the keys to their success, what they accomplished, and most importantly where they are going next!
•Leading the Way in Key “Result Areas” – through the “new lens” of Priority Based Budgeting, communities have unveiled an entirely unique understanding regarding the “Results of Government” that define the very role of modern local government. The answer to the question “why do we exist” has focused on several key “Result” areas most relevant for our time. This year’s conference will showcase leading innovators, redefining how to address economic development and local job growth through the use of incubators and partnerships; new models for achieving safer communities at lesser cost; revenue generation strategies attainable to every local government that have to date remained hidden; shared service models emerging to help local government redefine service levels in key public-public and public-private partnerships; understanding the complex role of local government in long-term sustainability; advancing past "performance measurement" to reveal a new component to priority based budgeting that includes "results measurement" strategies; explaining how credit rating agencies assess municipal credit ratings and how the transparent concepts of fiscal health and priority based budgeting can assist in stabilizing and improving bond and credit ratings, and more!
•Implementing Fiscal Health & Wellness Through Priority Based Budgeting – and of course, attendees will be immersed in the methodology, case studies and lessons learned in implementing Priority Based Budgeting in your community.
