Paula Coviello and Vicki Wiggins of Gibbs & Olson attended the Infrastructure Assistance Coordinating Council (IACC) Conference in Wenatchee in October. The IACC is an organization comprised of state and federal agencies, local government associations, and nonprofit technical assistance organizations that provide technical or financial assistance to local jurisdictions.
The conference provides an opportunity to meet funding program staff and explore potential funding strategies for our communities in need. The conference is also a great place to learn about changes in funding programs for the upcoming year. This year’s keynote speaker was Charles Marohn, co-founder and president of Strong Towns. Strong Towns is a non-profit non-partisan organization that helps America’s towns achieve financial strength and resiliency.
