NYGFOA provides many cost-conscious learning opportunities, among other resources, both in person and remotely to help you at any stage of your career. We offer a variety of seminars, workshops, webinars, and forums throughout the year discussing hot topics and trends in the government finance industry in each of the five regions across New York State (Western, Central, Northeast, Downstate, and Long Island) and online. We also provide basic and advanced in-depth training in the nine core areas of government finance through our Government Finance Institute (GFI) and Governmental Accounting Essentials Program (GAE). In addition, we communicate breaking news and information that could impact the duties you carry out every day.



The mission of NYGFOA is to strengthen the capacity of government finance professionals to manage public finances effectively and responsibly and to use the collective knowledge and expertise of its members for the public benefit by enhancing government efficiency and accountability throughout New York State.
