Candidate Statement:

Over the past sixty years, CSMFO leadership has faithfully served its members through innovation, collaboration, education and professional development. To ensure another successful sixty years, our leaders’ efforts will include the following:

The Career Development Committee will continue to evaluate existing core course offerings, survey members, develop new courses, build a comprehensive library of “Quick Hits”, and coordinate with the Technology Committee to evaluate and implement new solutions for content delivery to meet members’ diverse needs.

The Membership Benefits Committee will strategically expand membership, enhance existing member engagement, and in collaboration with local chapters, seek out new members by connecting with local universities, special districts, large agencies, and other non-member government organizations to demonstrate the value of membership and further broaden the diversity of the organization.

The Communications Committee will continue to produce a high quality magazine and augment the use of social media to connect with CSMFO’s multi-generational membership and enhance the CSMFO brand.

The Professional Standards and Recognition Committee will coordinate with the Program Committee, Career Development Committee, and GFOA to design a training track at the annual conference sessions and core courses in alignment with GFOA’s Certified Public Finance Official (CPFO) certification.
