Well, for most of us. As we approach any new fiscal year, do you find yourself wondering if you got the dates right? I mean we still have year-end close for fiscal year 17-18, and yet we are planning and transacting for the new fiscal year 18-19, and for some of us, we are actually thinking ahead 2-5 years, sometimes longer, to see how we can address the finances in the future.

I can’t believe how quickly the summer is flying by! As I write this, we’re heading into mid-August, and the long list of items on the white board in my office that were supposed to be my “summer projects” remain mostly untouched.

In early March, about a month after the CSMFO conference in Sacramento, I had the great pleasure of attending the Oregon Government Finance Officers Association (OGFOA) 2017 Spring Conference.

This spring’s conference was held on the coast at the Salishan Resort and Spa.
