We recognize that we all need to act responsibly in the face of the current fiscal crisis. But we also need to understand the fiscal impact and the process and standards the Governor and the Legislature are using to implement the 9C cuts. We are hopeful that we will have an oppportunity, in the long term to continue to work with Charlotte Golar Richie and other decision-makers in the Administration and the Legislature as they review the need for additional 9C cuts and build the FY 10 budget.
And yes, we know that we will likely find ourselves competing with each other as we advocate that our programs are the most “sympathetic and compelling,” but at least we are working together to build a foundation of good information and smart strategies.
Please join us at 4:30 sharp on the 9th floor conference room at 30 Winter St in downtown crossing on October 15th. At this Insider Budget Briefing you will hear from experienced advocates such as David Magnani from the Massachusetts Non Profit Network , a high level representative from the Administration, Assistant Secretary of Administration and Finance Ron Marlow, and finally one of the top fiscal experts in the state, Mike Widmer from the Mass Taxpayers Foundation.
The tuition for the session is $20 and includes a light supper and take-home materials. Please contact Carmen Arce-Bowen at (617) 275-2833 or firstname.lastname@example.org to RSVP for this event, or with any questions!
