The Island Government Finance Officers’ Association Spring Conference Report is now available. The IGFOA met in Atlanta, Georgia, in June, 2010.
Since 2000, the summer meeting of the Island Government Financial Officers’ Association (IGFOA) has immediately followed the annual conference of the Government Finance Officers Association. This year the conferences were held in Atlanta, Georgia, from June 6th to June 11th, 2010. The theme for the 104th Annual Conference of the GFOA was “The Finance Officer’s Role in Doing More with Less.” This concept was especially relevant to the insular governments and was carried over to the IGFOA meeting. The objectives of the IGFOA meeting were to:
- Review key issues and ideas presented during the GFOA Conference and discuss how they apply to the insular governments;
- Review progress and plan for next steps on key financial management initiatives: Performance Measures for Finance Offices, status of the governments’ Single Audits, and the governments’ application of the Finance Office Assessment Tool;
- Build and practice management skills in staff performance and career development; and
- Develop action plans to address each government’s highest priority issues in improving their performance and continuing progress on IGFOA’s key financial management initiatives.
