Ehlers’ 2023 Minnesota School Finance Seminar

Welcome to Ehlers’ 2023 School Finance Seminar! We’re excited you’re joining us for a day of educational sessions designed specifically for Minnesota School District administrators, business officials and finance professionals. During our time together, we’ll explore a variety of topics including capital project financing, budget and enrollment projections, the importance of effectively managing bond proceeds in today’s interest rate environment and much more! Plus, we are privileged to welcome Cathy Erickson, Director of School Finance with the Minnesota Department of Education, as our keynote speaker. We’ll wrap up the day with Case Studies and Cookies where we’ll dive into some real life examples of how Minnesota School Districts achieved their project goals using a variety of financing tools.
