MGFOA Winter Meeting, Sturbridge

Thursday, February 23,2017

The Changing World of Municipal Finance in Massachusetts: 

The Municipal Modernization Act and the changing interest rate environment are combining to alter the financial landscape for the first time in many years. 

What are the implications and what should you be doing to prepare.

9:00-9:30         Registration - Continental Breakfast and Coffee

9:30 – 10:30    Dave Javaheri from Morgan Stanley will discuss the new opportunities that are available for municipal investment and strategies we should be considering to take advantage of these change.

10:45 – 11:45    Representatives from First Southwest Company will present a similar view as it applies to the municipal borrowing world.

11:45-12:30       How do you recruit, promote and retain municipal finance officials in today’s changing world.  As a generation of senior municipal finance officials in Massachusetts is leaving, how do we fill those positions in an increasingly competitive job market.  Representatives from several communities that have recently gone through the recruiting process both successfully and still trying will discuss their experiences.

12:00-1:00 Lunch
