GFOA Committees

GFOA is advised by standing committees in seven areas of government finance. Active throughout the year, the committees are key links between the changes happening in the finance offices of members and the services the association provides to help finance officers successfully manage those changes. The committees give direction for GFOA's services by formulating new policies and raising professional standards via best practices.

Committee appointments are made by the GFOA president in September of each year.  Application for appointment are opened following the annual conference. Committee members serve a specified term, not to exceed three years according to the Standing Committee Policies and Procedures.
