"Working globally with governments, organizations, and individuals, the International Consortium on Governmental Financial Management, Inc. is dedicated to improving financial management, so governments may better serve their citizens."
Our mission includes three key elements. First, it highlights that, within the international community, the Consortium is unique - it serves as an "umbrella" bringing together diverse governmental entities, organizations (including universities, firms, and other professional associations), and individuals.
At the same time, it welcomes a broad array of financial management practitioners (accountants, auditors, comptrollers, information technology specialists, treasurers, and others) working in all levels of government (local/municipal, state/provincial, and national).
Additionally the mission statement emphasizes the organization's focus on activities to promote professional development and the exchange of information.
