Goals for GFOA

Legislative advocacy is extremely important and should be a top priority. Additionally, I believe GFOA should provide real-world examples in plain language about how to manage and implement government financial issues. This can be accomplished through best practices with direct goals and guidance and informative trainings with experienced trainers in-person and virtually.
