CPBB Announces GFOA’s Shayne Kavanagh to Present at the “Summit of Leading Practices!”

Shayne Kavanagh is the Senior Manager of Research for GFOA. Shayne has been developing the practice and technique of long-term financial planning for local government since 2002 and has been working with local governments on financial planning ever since.

The Center for Priority Based Budgeting has had the privilege to collaborate with Shayne since 2008 when we spoke together about Priority Based Budgeting at GFOA's Annual Conference   in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. 

We've each been on the front-lines of the "New Normal" throughout these last few years and it was Shayne's objective research about how local governments are not only surviving, but creating great transformations in their organizations and their communities that led us to partner on GFOA’s White Paper: Anatomy of a Priority Driven Budgeting Process.

He is the author of a number of publications on financial planning, including:

-       Financing the Future, the leading book about long-term financial planning in local government
-       Financial Policies, the essential guide to developing and implementing policies that define standards for financial management.
-       And a number of articles on long-term financial planning, financial policies, budget reform, using technology to improve efficiency, and other related topics for magazines including Government Finance Review, Public Management, School Business Affairs, and Public CIO.

He is also a regular speaker on the topic of financial planning, having spoken at a number of conferences on the topic, including: the national GFOA conference, the International City/County Managers Association, the National League of Cities, and the National Tax Association. He has also been a guest lecturer at Northern Illinois University, the University of Illinois at Chicago, and the University of Chicago.

We are so pleased to have Shayne bring the lessons learned of Long-term Financial Planning to the "Summit of Leading Practices."
