Government Finance Officers
Association of British Columbia

Session Description:

Today, more than ever before, the local government Finance Officer faces many challenges as the role itself continues to evolve. Last year’s forum theme was ‘What Keeps You Up at Night?’. This year the forum will explore the strategic role of the finance officer through the lens of a Finance Strategic Planning Framework Project currently being undertaken by several proponents. The session will open with an overview of the project followed by project proponent presentations and moderated panel discussion with Q&A. Genelle Davidson, Divisional Director Financial Services for the City of Kelowna and GFOABC President, will lead out the panel presentations. Genelle will be joined by Rick Danyluk, Manager of Financial Planning for the District of North Vancouver and Kathy Humphrey, Director of Corporate Services for the City of Kamloops. This panel session will be highly interactive, delegates will have the opportunity to join the conversation.

Moderator: Jody Rechenmacher, Community Infrastructure Consultant, Urban Systems
