Welcome to the WGFOA web site. Since its inception in 1966, our organization has strived to provide quality training and educational opportunities and timely updating of issues of importance to public finance officials.
As outlined in our by-laws, our goals are to:
§ Stimulate the professional development and promote free interchange of information in methods of budget preparation, financial reporting, governmental accounting, financial administration and general public finance.
§ Further the career development goals of public finance professionals and broaden the understanding of our duties and responsibilities.
§ Promote interest in and awareness of the public finance profession.
§ Promote professional contacts through the meetings of the Association.
Our Board continues to spend numerous hours on putting together themed conferences that provide our members with information they can use in all aspects of their jobs. Due to shrinking budgets, most staff in every part of an organization has had to take on additional duties and responsibilities. To that end WGFOA offers a wide array of sessions that include topic areas including human resources, risk management, purchasing and legal issues as well as accounting and finance related issues to assist our members in their expanded roles.
