TaMiya Dickerson, CPA, Partner and West Region, Advisory Practice Leader, Grant Thornton

Description

A Session Presented by our Underwriter Grant Thornton As the COVID-19 pandemic resets major work trends, the future of work has also moved in a new direction becoming more virtual and remote. Even post pandemic attitudes toward offices will continue to evolve. Join us as we discuss the long term COVID-19 impacts to cities, including potential reduced adoption of public transit, reduced use of hotel and commercial office space (including impact to tax base), impact to broadband needs, and impact to City employees who are likely to permanently telework a lot more. The COVID-19 pandemic has forced a rethink of where work happens. Join us for a discussion with city leaders to learn about the path forward.
