New Workshop @ The Lab – Chicago Finance – No Gimmicks

Is Chicago broke?

When city officials tell you the

budget is balanced and the city’s future is bright, are these statements grounded in fact…or are they a grand illusion?  Participate in this special symposium with Shelia Weinberg, CEO of Truth in Accounting, and explore:

  • The slight of hand the City of Chicago uses to “balance” its budget
  • The average household financial burden for Chicago residents
  • Are we headed to bankruptcy like Detroit or Stockton, CA
  • Possible solutions and how we can make Chicago’s and your own personal fiscal future rosier!

Sheila A. Weinberg, CPA, is the founder and CEO of the Institute for Truth in Accounting.  The Institute’s mission is to compel, in a nonpartisan manner, governmental entities to produce financial reports that are understandable, reliable, transparent and correct.

Since 2002 Ms. Weinberg has led the Institute’s research initiative which includes the “The Truth about Balanced Budget: a Fifty State Study”, the “Financial State of the States” and the “Financial State of the Union”.   Because of her expertise in governmental budgeting and accounting Ms. Weinberg has been requested to testify before the Federal Accounting Standards Advisory Board (FASAB), the Government Accounting Standards Board and numerous state legislative hearings.
