Established in 1991, the Black Caucus of the Government Finance Officers Association is dedicated to supporting the aspirations and achievements of African-American public finance officers; to pursue professional development opportunities for our members; and to sponsor projects to assist African-Americans seeking careers in government finance. Through education and networking opportunities, the Black Caucus supports members in their careers and encourages members to participate and contribute at the national level and in the state associations.
