New Public Finance Training Focuses on Treasury and Investment Management

ATLANTA – Registration is now open for the Center for State and Local Finance’s (CSLF) executive education course in treasury and investment management, which will be held Nov. 11-13 at the Andrew Young School of Policy Studies in Atlanta, Ga.

The training explores the treasury function, introducing strategies to balance cash availability with efficient asset returns. Topics will include cash flow strategy, banking and investment policies, as well as relationships with banks and brokers. Participants will leave class ready to deploy best practices that help ensure their agency or government manages financial risks successfully.

Ronald Shelby, former director of finance and administration for Galveston County, Texas, is the lead faculty member for the course. Guest speakers working in the field will be on hand for class discussions and networking, and an expert panel of veteran practitioners will critique final projects.

The three-day course also covers key content tested by the Government Finance Officer Association’s treasury and investment management exam, one of the five exams required for the CPFO certification. Participants can earn up to 24 CPE credits for this course through the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA).

Registration is open until Nov. 4. All public sector employees receive a 30 percent discount on tuition. The Government Finance Officers Association is also offering a scholarship that will cover the cost of two CSLF executive education courses, including the treasury and investment training.
