In 2017, GFOA is celebrating over 30 years of holding the Advanced Government Finance Institute (AGFI).  This week-long intensive program provides selected GFOA members from across the United States and Canada an opportunity to enhance their leadership skills and focus on emerging trends within the public finance community.  The program has been built to provide GFOA members an opportunity to receive training that is not focused on technical matters, but rather is focused on leadership issues to improve their standing in the public finance arena.

The five-day program, in partnership with the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s School of Business, gathers top academic instructors along with government officials and private-sector specialists to provide 50 qualified attendees with a unique opportunity to address big picture issues facing public finance today.

The Institute also offers personal and team-building leadership training, and affords participants many networking opportunities with their peers, an element that enhances the program experience, both professionally and personally.

Attendee Information 

Only 50 qualified candidates are selected based on their professional experience. GFOA membership is required.  Please download the application below and return it by March 31, 2017 by email or fax.  Dress is casual throughout the week.
