It’s been 100 years since the enactment of the Budget and Accounting Act, which set the foundation for all the Federal budget processes used today. To celebrate this historic milestone, join us for a week-long, virtual event featuring panels and discussion groups led by top experts in the budget and financial management field.

The event will feature former directors of the Office of Management and Budget and Congressional Budget Office, as well as experts in budgeting technology, state and local finance, and the evolution over time in the budgeting relationship between Congress and the executive branch.
