8:30 a.m.: Welcome
8:35 a.m.: The Power of the Purse
Federal dollars and a little good luck helped Michigan balance its budget in 2020. As leaders look to develop the fiscal year 2021 – 2022 budget, how do they plan to make smart investments and spend one-time money coming down from Washington DC?
This moderated session will peel back the onion on the appropriations process and discuss the power of the purse.
9:05 a.m.: The Future of Work
The workforce is undergoing a rapid transformation. In this session, we will explore how organizations and policymakers can tackle pressing workplace challenges and opportunities such as filling the skills gap, competing with enhanced unemployment benefits, integrating emerging technologies, returning employees to in-person work and more.
