OUR MISSION

Our mission is to promote excellence in local government through the support and development of finance professionals.

Our long term vision is that British Columbia will become the leader in financial management for local government in Canada.

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 5 day intensive workshop has been well received as an important training and orientation tool for new municipal finance officers, providing them with the skills and knowledge required for their jobs.  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.
