MRSC Webinars 


COVID-19 Budgeting Strategies (Webinar Series)

Webinar Overview:
MRSC is presenting a three-part webinar series on budgeting strategies during the era of COVID-19.  

Educational Objectives:

This series has been developed to meet the needs of those individuals responsible for planning and developing an agency's annual or biennial budget. This series consists of three 1.5-hour webinars held from 10 AM to 11:30 AM, with each webinar addressing a specific component of budget development:

  • July 21: Strategically Building Your Budget Calendar. One of the most important steps in the budget process is establishing an effective budget calendar addressing objectives, public input, preliminary development, final adoption, and more. This webinar will address how to establish a budget strategy under the current COVID-19 challenges, including a timeline to meet your jurisdiction’s needs. Recording is available to registrants.
  • August 4: Revenue Forecasting Under COVID-19. Accurate revenue forecasting is key to a successful budget, but COVID-19 has made it much harder to create such forecasts, especially for jurisdictions that are heavily dependent upon sales taxes or tourism. This webinar will discuss current economic indicators and forecasts by state agencies and provide considerations for forecasting 2021 and beyond. Recording is available to registrants.
  • September 1: Balancing Budget Needs With Budget Wants. Balancing a budget can be difficult under extreme conditions such as COVID-19. How can you mitigate the impacts of COVID-19 on your budget while still providing the services your citizens need and expect? When and how much of your reserves should be used to balance the budget? The final session in this webinar series will address these questions and others. Registration closes 12 PM on August 31.

Clerks, treasurers, clerk-treasurers, finance directors, and any administrative or finance staff responsible for preparing the annual budget as well as elected officials with an interest in budget planning and development.

First Amendment Considerations for Local Government:  Protests, Petitions, Social Media, & Signs

Wednesday, September 23, 2020
11 AM - 12 PM
Cost: $35 - training scholarships available (see below)

Webinar Overview:
First Amendment issues arise for local governments in a variety of ways, affecting numerous municipal departments, including legal, human resources, executive, planning, parks, and more. Because of this, it’s imperative for local government staff and officials to have a solid understanding of the legal landscape. This webinar will provide up-to-date guidance on how local governments should handle  situations currently in the news that involve First Amendment rights, such as protests.

Educational Objectives:

The First Amendment has applicability to various municipal issues, and there are real ramifications for local government agencies whose policies or practices deprive an individual of their constitutional right to free speech and assembly. How can a local government develop practical policies and procedures while still ensuring citizens’ First Amendment rights? This webinar will focus on a local government’s role in four current First Amendment issues to explore this delicate balance:

  1. Protests in the streets, parks, and other public property
  2. Petition signature gathering;
  3. Elected official and employee postings on their personal social media; and
  4. Signs in the right-of-way and on other public property.

Who Should Attend?
Local government attorneys/legal staff, private attorneys with local government clients, elected officials, and those appointed to serve on local government boards and commissions.

Presenters:
Callie Castillo, Attorney, Lane Powell. Before joining Lane Powell, Callie was a Deputy Solicitor General at the Washington State Attorney General’s Office.
