The theme of this year’s conference is “Let’s Fly Together: Learning through a sharing of minds!” How can we not incorporate into our theme the spirit of aviation with our 2020 conference taking place in Oshkosh. Learning through a sharing of minds; what exactly does this mean? Each year, when the planning committee comes together to choose the topics of the conference, we all have ideas on what topics we would like to hear more about. Collaboratively, we share our ideas and through discussion learn a lot from our fellow planning committee members. We all attend the Financial Managers conference with the expectation to learn more than we currently know. But, the real learning comes from the sharing of minds through networking and relationships we build with our fellow Financial Managers.

This year our conference sessions are trying to adhere to our conference theme. In our opening session, there will be a collaboration between DHS, DCF and WCHSA to show how WCHSA is working with each Department on specific initiatives and we have sessions that bring together both State Personnel and County Financial Managers. We encourage you all to “Fly Together” and attend the 2020 Financial Managers Conference and “Learn through a sharing of minds!” See you in May!
