Call for 2020 Presentations

  • Have you ever wanted to speak at the CSMFO conference? Now is your chance to submit your idea for the conference concurrent sessions at the 2020 conference in Anaheim (Disneyland), which will be held January 28-31, 2020. If you are not interested in presenting, you may know someone who is, or you may just have a really great idea for a session.

    Fill out the form below and submit a suggestion to us. Concurrent sessions cover all aspects of local government finance, including accounting and financial reporting, budget and financial planning, financial management (including utility financial management), treasury and debt, information technology and innovation, leadership and management skills, and any other finance-related topic. So if you have an idea for a great session, please let us know by submitting a response to our Call for Presentations.

    Topics should be educational, non-commercial, and provide value to a wide-ranging group of attendees. Sales pitches or marketing for products and/or services submitted as proposals will NOT be considered. Ideally, sessions should include at least one practitioner from a public agency. IF A PRACTITIONER IS NOT INCLUDED, THAT WILL SIGNIFICANTLY REDUCE THE CHANCES OF YOUR PROPOSAL BEING SELECTED. Because concurrent sessions are typically 1 hour 15 minutes in length, the number of speakers should be limited to no more than three. Please make sure everyone proposed for your session is available during the dates of the conference (January 28-31, 2020).
