This is our final day of the 2014 Annual Conference. Our volunteers, led by Donijo Robbins and Conference Chair, Bob Kravchuk, have done a phenomenal job organizing this event, and we know all of you have had a wonderful time here in Grand Rapids. Thank you very much for your patience, feedback, participation and spirit over the past several days. More importantly, thank you for using this conference for what it is intended to be: an environment to present and discuss research, network with fellow public finance experts, and discuss critical fiscal issues affecting all leves of the public sector.
We look forward to seeing you next year, October 1st-3rd, in our Nation's Capital at the Washington Marriott.
