Fundamentals Virtual Forum FAQs

Please view our list of frequently asked questions below.

GFOA’s 2023 Virtual Forum provides an opportunity for those new to government or those with career aspirations of obtaining a leadership position in the field to experience a day in the life of a finance officer.

Finance officers need a mix of technical and leadership skills to navigate their day, work with teams within finance and throughout the organization, and deliver results for their community.

Sessions included in the virtual forum are intended to provide skills, recommendations, and best practices that all finance officers can use to improve their organization.

All sessions for the 2023 Virtual Forum will use examples of how to apply these principles within a project setting. Sessions will explore how to build a new library for the community. The core of the presentations is to present finance officers of all levels with knowledge about each topic area and use the case study as the practical application.

The Fundamentals Virtual Forum will be held July 10-14, 2023, with two core sessions each day, as well as a kick off session on Monday, July 10 and a session about GFOA member benefits on Wednesday, July 13.
