GFOAT Spring Conference Virtual Information

 
GFOAT has developed a great virtual program that we think will be helpful to you.  You will have access to keynote presentations, and the GFOAT Sponsor Hall starting April 12. Your registration gives you unlimited access to sessions through May 16, 2021 on your own schedule and pace. GFOAT has also partnered with the Texas Municipal Utilities Association (TMUA) to develop a post-conference tailored to municipal utility and financial professionals. This partnership is a reflection of the GFOAT and TMUA leadership working on ways to keep municipal utility and finance professionals connected until we can meet in person.
