Training & Events

Whether it is ICGFM’s signature in-person conferences, the new and highly successful Virtual Training Symposium, knowledge sharing at smaller virtual events such as webinars or other online programming, ICGFM offers diverse training and educational opportunities for those working in the public finance space.

ICGFM programs help advance governmental financial management principles and standards and promote best practice implementation. Many of ICGFM’s trainings and events also offer an opportunity to earn continuing professional education (CPE) units. 

Starting this year, ICGFM is rolling out a new portfolio of events throughout the year, including Webinars and Invitation-Only Forums programs:
