Women's Public Finance Network

2023–2024 Theme: "Preparing the Next Generation of Women Public Finance Officers"

Established in 1990, the Women's Public Finance Network (WPFN) is a voluntary association of women, elected and appointed officials, and other women finance professionals, formed within the GFOA of the United States and Canada. WPFN was originally formed to develop a core network of women GFOA members to coordinate communications and to encourage participation in GFOA and WPFN. The purpose of GFOA’s WPFN is to foster the careers of women in public finance through education, networking, and mentoring opportunities. WPFN is open to any active or associate GFOA member.
