Treasurer Mandel Announces 2011 Center for Public Investment Management Conference Schedule
COLUMBUS – State Treasurer of Ohio Josh Mandel announced today the 2011 schedule for the Ohio Treasury’s Center for Public Investment Management (CPIM) Conference. CPIM is a continuing education program for Ohio’s public funds managers and their oversight authorities provided by the Ohio Treasury as required by law.
“CPIM is a very important Ohio Treasury program used to help educate local government finance officers so they can make intelligent and informed decisions on behalf of taxpayers and their constituencies,” said Treasurer Mandel. “The program allows public funds managers to get the latest information on best practices and other strategies to keep their financial house in order. With budgets tightening across the state and the nation, government entities at all levels are being asked to do more with less. The continuing education offered through CPIM has never been more important and gives stewards of taxpayer dollars the educational resources to ensure fiscal responsibility.”
CPIM Academy is a mandatory program of annual continuing training conducted by the Ohio Treasurer’s office. Public funds managers from a variety of public entities, including school districts, counties, townships, libraries and municipalities are required to attend training or obtain exemptions from training. CPIM offers the highest standard of comprehensive education and instruction in areas such as cash management, investments, public finance, management, ethics, compliance and reporting. CPIM Academy offers fundamental and advanced courses on prudent investment strategies and risk management to meet the diverse educational needs of new and experienced public funds managers.
“CPIM conferences provide valuable information for public funds managers, and we are looking to expand our online library of courses to make resources more accessible and convenient to public funds managers,” continued Treasurer Mandel. “One of my top goals is to utilize technology to make government more efficient.”
