16 hours of Free Continuing Professional Education

October 7-8, 2020

The Comptroller’s Division of Local Government Audit and the Tennessee Government Finance Officers Association (TGFOA) invite you to attend a free online training seminar this fall. 

This training is specifically designed to provide the 16 hours of free CPE training for Certified County Finance Officers (CCFOs) pursuant to the Policies and Procedures for the Certified County Finance Officer Program, published by the Division of Local Government Audit. The training is also designed to provide training for Certified Municipal Finance Officers (CMFOs) as well as other governmental finance professionals. 

The 2-day seminar is open to anyone interested in attending the training. You do not have to be a CCFO, CMFO, CPA, etc. and you do not have to be a member of TGFOA.  However, it is important that you do register for the event. After you have registered, a separate email will be sent to you with a link to the webinar. This will occur a few days prior to the event.

Our goal is to provide quality training while being responsive to limitations associated with uncertainties surrounding COVID-19 and the resulting budget cuts for travel this fiscal year by many local governments. We hope many of you will take advantage of this opportunity to develop professionally and earn continuing education.

As of 2019, TGFOA will no longer accept physical checks mailed to the Treasurer. We have implemented a new payment software to accept electronic check payments.

If you are paying the registration with a check, you will need to complete the registration form and choose the “Invoice Me” option for your payment method.  Once the form has been submitted, you will receive two emails.  The first is an email to pay online with a credit/debit card, and the second is an email with the link to process the check payment online.
