Public Funds Investment Act (PFIA) Workshop for Small Cities - NEW WORKSHOP SCHEDULED FOR MAY
It is time for an encore. For those of you who missed our sold-out March PFIA Workshop, we have scheduled a repeat performance on May 16-17 in Austin. And if history is any indicator, you will want to reserve your seat soon. Our all-star lineup of instructors is sure to sell out again.
PFIA training is not only a good idea, it is required. The treasurer, the chief financial officer (if the treasurer is not the chief financial officer), and the investment officer must attend at least one training session, ten hours in length, within 12 months after taking office and must take ten hours of instruction every two years.
The TML workshop meets the training requirements under state law and is designed for beginners and professionals, including elected and appointed city officials, with little expertise in managing investment portfolios. The PFIA workshop for small cities provides all the necessary information, but with a focus on the special needs of cities with populations of 15,000 and less.
