Public and Internal Financial Reporting made easy & Alternate employee benefit plans

Topic 1: STARS Retirement Plan Option
Richard Averett, Executive Director/CFO; Regional Government Services Authority, Ed Wagner, Managing Director; SageView Advisory Group
Learn how local agencies maximized their employee benefits through a public agency created pool - STARS (Self-Directed Tax-Advantaged Retirement System) - governed by Trustees from public agencies.

Topic 2: Management Reporting, Open government, transparency and community engagement
Mike McCann and Inge Fryklund; Delphi Solutions
These terms all reflects the intersection of two emerging trends: New technologies give local governments powerful options for sharing financial information on the web and through social media - but also create new challenges for staff. Citizens accustomed to an online world are impatient with old ways, and demand more from their cities than ever before. We will survey this new landscape and talk a little about how Delphi's OpenGov.com platform provides budget communication tools that work for both staff and citizens.
