The Island Government Finance Officers’ Association (IGFOA) was established in 1999 to promote improved financial management in the insular governments. IGFOA has met twice a year since 2000 to discuss public sector accounting and financial management requirements and to exchange best practices for implementing those requirements in the insular areas. Through funding provided by the U.S. Department of Interior’s Office of Insular Affairs (DOI/OIA), the IGFOA fall conference was held at the Wailea Beach Marriott Beach Resort in Wailea, Maui, Hawaii from December 5 – 7, 2006. Representatives of the finance and procurement offices from all the insular governments participated in the conference and work sessions.
The 2018 GFOA Conference will be held from May 6 to 9, 2017, in St. Louis, MO.
The Executive Leadership Development Program will begin accepting applications in early 2018 for the Class of 2019.
