Welcome to the GFOA-MO Website
The Government Finance Officers Association of Missouri is a non-profit professional organization whose purpose is to improve the practice of governmental finance in the State of Missouri as developed and recommended by the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada as well as other recognized authorities.
Our objectives include developing mutually understandable procedures of accounting and financial reporting, budgeting and capital planning, cash management, financial administration, and debt management; encouraging the use of consistent technology, classification, and principals; training qualified public officials and employees; and identifying ethical, high quality government service.
In addition, it is our goal to facilitate closer relationships and understanding among those concerned with public finance in Missouri while providing a system of networking, training and information sharing among finance officers. We provide training and a forum for the discussion of common issues, problems or other objectives of mutual interest to public finance officers.
The GFOA of Missouri also has local chapters to serve the membership. These chapters geographically divide the state into three sections. The chapters provide a variety of seminars and training opportunities.
