Black Caucus

Mission Statement

We are the Black Caucus of the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA). We are dedicated to the objectives of GFOA and encourage our members to participate and contribute at the national level and in the state associations. Established in 1991, our mission is to diligently support 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.
