Budget Matters 2013, our second annual policy conference is Thursday, December 12th. Just one month from today!

If you haven't registered yet, what are you waiting for?

We've come up with the Top 10 Reasons that you should attend:

10). We've assembled a great mix of experts, legislators, and advocates to discuss our state's most pressing issues.

9). There's no party like a fiscal policy and budget analysis party.

8).  Because Sound Research + Bold Solutions = one amazing conference.

7). You will gain valuable skills such as the ability to discuss "the prosperity wage" at your company holiday party or message pivot when talking about taxes with your in-laws.

6). The state budget, taxes, and growing the middle class impact everyone.

5). You don't often find our staff all together in one place.

4). Tickets are only $90 which includes breakfast, lunch, snacks, plenary and breakout sessions.

3). Seattle in December is lovely. It stays light out until at least 4 p.m.! 

2). Future opportunity and prosperity for all depend on the choices we make now.

1). Heather McGhee, Jared Bernstein, and Governor Inslee (OK, those are three reasons. But very good reasons).
