Author Bill Statler was also a speaker at the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada Annual Conference on June 5 in San Francisco. His presentation was entitled:
A 12-Step Program for Recovering from Financial Distress
While the economy is recovering, governments continue to face rising cost pressures and a public that, generally, does not support additional taxes. This adds up to the potential for financial distress. Attendees will learn about GFOA's model for recovering from financial distress and staying financially healthy from practitioners who have applied the model.
