One if by Land, Two if by Sea: Planning for Economic Cycles

Ballroom B (Mez.)


Planning for unknown economic cycles is a significant challenge, particularly in times of reduced budgets. Hear from three states on what they have done to monitor and plan for changes in the economy. Topics include what economic data to watch, how to monitor data, preparing for changes in staffing, partnerships outside of the workforce agency, and how to plan on the budget side. Please come prepared to share what your state is doing.
