President's Letter

 

Dear GNP Colleagues,

Thank you for allowing me to serve as your president this year. I look forward to working with all of you and to seeing many of you at the semi-annual meetings. This section consists of members who are not only GNP scholars and educators but also some of the nicest people I know. I fondly remember presenting a paper at my first midyear meeting at Harvard University in 2005. Even though I was new to the group and only a doctoral student at the time, I was warmly welcomed by all. If you are new to the section, I hope that you attend our 2022 midyear meeting and enjoy the same experiences as me and many of our GNP colleagues when first attending our midyear meetings.

Over the past 30 years, such research efforts have resulted in publishing their research in research briefs, journal articles, and occasionally in GASB research reports.
