      Conference Workshop Schedule

      The final two-day schedule and Friday's workshop descriptions are now available. Due to the federal shutdown, three federal agencies may not be available to present at Thursday's Pre-Conference Federal Forecast as planned. Several State of Nevada agencies have stepped up to discuss the federal pass-through grants available in lieu of their federal counterparts.
