FEI ForwardThinking: Navigating One City’s Financial Future

1 CPE Credit

FEI ForwardThinking Q2 Series:
Government Controllers Speak

The role of government has never been more important than it is today, with federal, state and local leaders working with the private sector to lead the US economy out of the financial crisis created by the COVID-19 pandemic. With trillions of dollars at stake, government comptrollers are at the tip of the spear in making sure taxpayers’ money is spent wisely and the right private sector partners are working within the system.

Philadelphia has undergone profound change over the past decade as the private sector expanded, jobs were created and its skyline has transformed with new construction. This rapid growth makes the need for government oversight more important than ever.

Philadelphia City Controller Rebecca Rhynhart was sworn into office in 2018, making her the first woman City Controller for the City of Philadelphia.  Since then, she’s used her role as the City’s financial watchdog to take on some of Philadelphia’s biggest challenges, including the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and gun violence, while pushing for stronger financial management and a more efficient and effective government.  Controller Rhynhart will discuss how she’s working to have the biggest possible impact on Philadelphians and City services.

Join the Financial Education and Research Foundation (FERF), in cooperation with Robert Half | Protiviti, for the Q2 sessions of a year-long series featuring live, in-depth Q&A discussions with government controllers on the ways they are leading the state and federal government out of the pandemic.
