We hope you enjoyed the 2014 Nanaimo Conference.
The presentations from the speakers are being added to our website as soon as we receive the final version - look under Reference Materials, 2014 Conference.
We are looking forward to catching up again next year in Penticton in the sunny Okanagan.

WHAT WE DO
Our focus is on training and development of finance professionals. We offer a variety of courses and workshops on topics of current interest and relevance to local government finance officers. Our annual Boot Camp

We also provide opportunities for our members to connect with other local finance professionals and supporting organizations by holding an Annual Conference and Trade Show in May.
