GovFin 2023: Empowering Governments, Modernizing Reporting

Conference in Washington DC

Date & time

Nov 9, 2023, 8:45 am-6:00 pm EST

The Center for Local, State, and Urban Policy (CLOSUP) is promoting our research partner's, XBRL/US,  upcoming November 9, 2023 conference in Washington DC.  Stephanie Leiser, faculty lead for CLOSUP's Fiscal Health Project, will present on CLOSUP's efforts to reform how local government finances are reported.

Join the conversation about the passage of two recently enacted laws — the Financial Data Transparency Act (FDTA), and the Grants Reporting Efficiency and Transparency (GREAT) Act — and discover how governments can explore what data standards are, and how they improve efficiencies and modernize reporting.

REGISTER TODAY (Please Note this is an in-person conference in Washington DC).

The conference will feature case studies on federal standards programs implemented by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), as well as local government case studies in Michigan and Colorado.

Regulators and standards organizations will discuss the municipal securities elements of the FDTA.

Panel discussions and demonstrations will address legal entity identifiers and the mechanics of creating and using structured, standardized data.

Attendees of the one-day event will earn CPE in NASBA’s Accounting field of study.
