From wildfires in the West to hurricanes in the Gulf of Mexico and along the Eastern Seaboard, natural disasters are becoming more frequent and more severe throughout the United States.

Tune in for AABPA’s next Monthly Musing on Friday, November 20th, at 12 pm (ET) for a behind-the-scenes discussion on better understanding the state of natural disaster spending by federal, state, & local governments, featuring:

AABPA’s Monthly Musings is a free webinar series featuring diverse leaders from across the budgeting and financial management community. Experts discuss major challenges in their careers and how they navigated them, followed by a moderated Q&A open to all participants.

Last month, representatives from the National Association of State Budget Officers, City of Fairfax, VA, and Port of Portland discussed the impacts of the pandemic on state and local governments. This series provides a forum for AABPA members and other analysts to connect, learn from each other, and share best practices.
