Treasurer's Office Discusses Financial Strategies with Public Funds Managers in Southwest Ohio
WILMINGTON – Public funds managers from across Southwest Ohio met today for a Center for Public Investment Management (CPIM) conference hosted by the office of Ohio Treasurer Josh Mandel. 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. The CPIM conference was held at Roberts Conference Centre in Wilmington, Ohio, with approximately 100 public funds managers registered to attend.
“The CPIM program allows public funds managers to get the latest information on best practices and other strategies to keep their financial house in order. In this economic climate, it’s important that those entrusted to manage taxpayer dollars are equipped with the tools they need to make sound financial decisions,” said Treasurer Mandel. “Conferences like these bring together experts in government and finance to share knowledge that can help public funds managers be better stewards of hard-earned taxpayer dollars.”
CPIM 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 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.
