May 2 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Join us for our monthly meeting where all things are Democratic!
Guest Speaker is Nancy McCarthy Snyder
on “State Budgeting for Dummies”
Our guest speaker is Nancy McCarthy Snyder from Wichita. Nancy retired in 2016 after nearly 40 years on the WSU faculty, with her final position as director of the Hugo Wall School of Public Affairs and the Master of Public Administration Program. She served previously as Director of Research and also as the Associate Vice President for Academic Affairs and Research where she was responsible for University re-accreditation, academic planning and budgeting. From 2010-2016, Nancy was a member of the Kansas Consensus Revenue Estimating Group responsible for the official state revenue estimated for the state budget.
Utilizing her bachelor’s degree in math and her masters and doctorate in economics, Nancy’s research focused on human services and public finance, including evaluations of Kansas welfare reform programs; nonprofit governance and finance management; school finance; and a review of privatization of the Kansas child welfare system. As a professor, Nancy taught courses on public sector economics, state and local government budgeting, statistics, and nonprofit management. Needless to say, she’s skilled at simplifying big numbers and budget complexities.
Her topic for our meeting is “State Budgeting for Dummies” and we’re sure she will be able to answer many of our questions — please come prepared!
