Summit on Financial Leadership 2017

Sep 13 - 14, 2017
New York, NY


This year, Governing was honored to host our 2017 Summit on Financial Leadership in New York City – in partnership with Richard Ravitch, former Lt. Governor, State of New York.

The Summit is Governing’s premier gathering of state & local finance leaders. Each year, the Summit brings together a select audience of senior state and local finance officials and public finance experts for a “meeting of the minds” on key fiscal issues and emerging trends. We look at the main cost drivers, policy debates, and pain points in state and local government but also explore those challenges in the context of evolving social, political and economic pressures and long-term trends. Today more than ever, tough financial decisions and prudent fiscal management require strategic vision, political acumen, and a willingness to challenge the status-quo. Governing’s Summit on Financial Leadership offers a unique space for big-picture conversations and impact-focused ideas.

The overall theme of the Summit is Federalism through the Lens of Finance: Dynamics Between Cities, States, and the Federal Government Around the Key Fiscal Issues of our Time.
