MGFOA Scholarship for Fall Institute
The Michigan Government Finance Officers Association is proud to announce a scholarship program to our membership. The scholarship is available to members in good standing seeking financial aid to attend the Annual Fall Institute. Scholarship awards of up to $500 are provided to help defray the cost of travel and registration. Recipients are required to cover all travel expenses up front. After the Fall Institute, recipients will submit a reimbursement request documenting transportation and hotel expenses. The total amount of reimbursement is limited to the scholarship award less the cost of registration to the Fall Institute.
Applications are now being accepted and must be submitted to the Executive Director by July 1, 2014.
Please review the application for details.

CPFIM and Advanced CPFIM Certification Programs
April 14-15 CPFIM Program – Ypsilanti
April 15-16 ACPFIM Program – Ypsilanti
April 17-18 CPFIM Program – Mackinaw City
Register by April 1, 2014
The Michigan Municipal Treasurers Association is partnering with the Michigan Association of County Treasurers to bring the Certified Public Funds Investment Manager (CPFIM) certification program back to Michigan. This nationally-recognized certification program was developed by the Association of Public Treasurers of the United States and Canada (APT US&C) and is in strong demand by public funds investment personnel across the country. We’re also excited to announce that we will be offering the Advanced CPFIM program for the first time ever in Michigan!
The 8-hour CPFIM training will be offered in two locations: April 14th at the Ann Arbor Marriott Ypsilanti at Eagle Crest in Ypsilanti; and April 17th at the Mackinaw Beach and Bay Inn and Suites in Mackinaw City. The testing for each program will be the following mornings.
The 4-hour Advanced CPFIM training is available for individuals who have already received the CPFIM certification and will be offered on the afternoon of April 15th at the Ann Arbor Marriott Ypsilanti at Eagle Crest in Ypsilanti; the testing will be the following morning.
The registration fees for each program are $180 for members of the APT US&C and $270 for non-members which will include a one-year membership with APT US&C. (NOTE – If you are not currently a member of the APT US&C, DO NOT pay for membership prior to this event to get the lower registration rate. Their regular membership fees are more than $90 so you’ll be paying more if you apply for membership with them before this event.) The registration fees include the electronic study guide (you may preorder a hard copy for $11,) 8-hour or 4-hour training, testing, and a plaque if you successfully complete the program by passing the test.
Both of these programs qualify for CPE credits, CPFA credits and MiCPT credits.
Please see the brochure for additional information regarding the programs. The CPFIM and Advanced CPFIM programs are not just for treasurers or finance directors and this event is not limited to MMTA or MACT members. Please share the brochure with anyone in your organization or community who deals with investing public funds.
