From the Editor
By Alicia Cline
Please forgive the slight delay in issuing this quarterly, we’ve all been a little distracted.
So, if you haven’t audited your agency’s business continuity recently, I bet it’s on your mind now. Or you might be thinking, what exactly should our role be during a crisis? Well, keep a list of all the topics you’re thinking about and then let us know—it’s time for us to start thinking about future issues and we want to know which topics you’d like covered. And as always, you can email us with any ideas, suggestions, or complaints. We value our customers here at the LGAQ, and we would love to hear from you.
Anyway, if you find yourself with more free time than usual, I’ve got some good news for you. We’ve exceeded our article quota this quarter, and this issue is huge. So many articles, in fact, that this will be a true test of the new website’s capabilities—don’t all go running to the issue at the same time and crash it. Just kidding, go there now. We’ll take the risk.
This quarter focuses on economic development, and I’m sure we have every related topic covered in this issue. We’ve got your TIFs, your GOLTs, your CIPs, your BIAs, your BIDs, and your TPIDs. Don’t know what I’m talking about? Well, looks like we’ve got ourselves an old-fashioned LGAQ scavenger hunt. Get reading and find out.
Sadly, this is the issue where I usually get to tell you how excited I am to see be seeing you all at the conference in May. Maybe we can still do the reception virtually—how may of us will Zoom hold at one time? I will miss all of you this year. I hope you’re all staying healthy—and sane. Hang in there, auditors. I’ll see ya next quarter.
