1:40 - 2:30 pm | GASB 87 - Accounting, Reporting and Implementation

GASB Statement No. 87, Leases, is effective with reporting for fiscal years beginning after June 15, 2021.  This now makes many entities subject to the standard's new reporting requirements for lease transations. This is an opportunity to bring yourself up to speed on what changes are required in your entity's financial statements and accounting for leases as well as how to prepare to meet the requirements of the standard.

2:40 - 3:30 pm | Capital Budgeting Best Practices

In our current environment capital project planning is at the forefront for local governments across New York. Unfortunately, many finance and budget officers have historically lacked the tools required to implement and maintain a robust Capital Improvement Plan. This session will highlight some nationally recognized capital budgeting best practices and discuss how local governments can use modern software to create and communicate their capital plan to residents.

3:40 - 4:30 pm | Economic Update

Rising interest rates, inflation not seen in decades, volatility in the markets and the potential for an economic recession have economists and pundits wondering 'what's next?'  This session will provide a snapshot, post mid-term elections, of where the economy may be heading and what to possibly expect in 2023.
