1921 Budget & Accounting Act Centennial Event Closing Panels

Last year, we initiated a series of panels in commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the 1921 Budget Act. Join us for the closing panels to this event as we look to the future of federal budgeting. There is no cost to attend, but registration is required.

Your registration entitles you to attend both live sessions and provides access to the recorded versions once they are posted on the website. We look forward to seeing you again!

Please visit the event website for information and video recordings on prior panel discussions.
