AABPA Fall Symposium: Were Next for Budgeting? (November 6th)


Syllabi Database Now Available!

For a long time, ABFM has provided a database of syllabi, assignments and other aides for public finance and management courses. Technical difficulties led to the suspension of this resource a couple years ago. This week, due to the leadership of ABFM Secretary Meagan Jordan, we once again have a Syllabi Database available, and open to the public.

Book Launch Party @ABFM Conference, October 3rd

city-on-the-line-coverAndrew Kleine, long time Budget Director for the City of Baltimore, will host a party to celebrate his new book, City on the Line, on Wednesday, October 3rd, from 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m., in Denver, CO, in conjunction with the 2018 ABFM Annual Conference.

The event will be held at 1490 N. Lafayette St., Suite 201, in Downtown Denver.

Please join us for this special event to help launch an important contribution to good governance.

In City on the Line, former Baltimore budget director Andrew Kleine asks why the way government does its most important job – deciding how to spend taxpayer dollars – hasn’t changed in hundreds of years. Parts memoir, manifesto, and manual, this book tells the story of Baltimore’s radical departure from traditional line item budgeting to a focus on outcomes like better schools, safer streets, and stronger neighborhoods—during one of the most tumultuous decades in the city’s history.  Elected officials, executives, and citizens alike will be equipped to transform budgets in their city, state, or any other mission-driven organization.

ANDREW KLEINE was Baltimore’s budget director from 2008 to 2018.  He is a nationally recognized leader in municipal finance and performance management. He consults with local governments on budgeting for outcomes, financial planning, and efficiency.
