Each quarter GFOABC will pose a short survey to the membership. The results will be made available after the quarter closes. Do you have a question?

Previous quarterly survey results: Staff Per Diem Allowances

Next quarterly question: Elected Official Remuneration

Please take the time to complete this survey. 

Our most recent question on local government software was prompted after several major changes in the industry. The survey was presented to the membership October 1st and received 65 unique responses upon closing November 30th.
