Webinar Date & Time: Monday, May 11th, 1pm – 2pm CDT CPE Credits: 1
Webinar Objectives: Those who successfully complete this webinar should obtain a solid understanding of each of the following:
- Learn the most important metric for the current level of public safety and contagion risk.
- Learn the important pitfalls to watch in how the spread/prevalence of COVID-19 is commonly reported.
- Learn to separate the wheat from the chaff in COVID-19 reporting and statistics.
- Be aware of the early indicators for possible resurgence in your region.
Doug Hubbard (President) and Matt Millar (Sr. Quantitative Analyst) will cover how COVID-19 data, stories and reporting are pervasive, yet incomplete, and how public finances appear to hang in the balance of governmental response. HDR has been acclaimed for their COVID-19 forecasting since January 2020. However, both HDR and the GFOA know financial officers need more that just accurate data to make the best financial preparations and decisions for their communities, they need the 21st century tools to use it.
