GFOA Hero Award

The nomination period is now closed and will open again in early 2024.

GFOA’s Hero Award

GFOA’s mission is to advance excellence in government finance. Our values-based Code of Ethics is at the core of all that we do, and we are committed to building thriving communities. We work to support our members so that they can better serve their communities. We are constantly inspired by the roles our members play to lift up their communities while keeping their organizations running smoothly. 

Government finance officers work on many types of projects from finance to risk management and collaborate with various teams to improve their communities. We seek nominations of such champions for GFOA’s Fifth Annual Hero Award, which recognizes finance officers who have demonstrated extraordinary actions beyond their normal duties.

  • Nominees must be GFOA active government members.
  • A team composed of GFOA’s Executive Board members will review the applications and choose the recipients.
  • Nominations are now closed and will open again early next year.
