Municipal Finance Officers Fall Conference

2018 Annual Conference
Renaissance Hotel, Columbus

October 31st & November 1st

The Municipal Finance Officers Association of Ohio will be holding its Annual Fall Conference in conjunction with the Ohio Municipal League.

In order to create a more efficient way of distributing materials, you will receive all available materials in advance of the conference via email. Registering for the Conference will require a valid email address. The email will also serve as your registration confirmation.  As you know we no longer pass out paper handout packets at the conferences. Please feel free to print out these materials and bring them with you to the conference and/or download to your personal electronic devices such as an iPad or tablet. We believe a preview of the information can be extremely beneficial in preparing for the conference. Some presenters may bring handouts with them that were not made available for distribution prior to the conference. Please Note: emails are sent through the same software as the OML Legislative Bulletin, anyone who has “unsubscribed” from the distribution list must re-subscribe or use a different email address. 

In order to ensure the conference materials reach attendees in enough time to prepare we have set a Registration and Payment Deadline of October 22, 2018. All paid registrations will begin receiving the confirmation email with materials on October 24th. If you have any questions about the new registration process please feel free to contact Zoë Wade at either or 614-221-4349 ext. 11.

The OML will be conducting a prize raffle again this year. Raffle tickets will be sold at the registration desk. You can purchase a raffle ticket for $1. Tickets will go on sale Wednesday and will continue until 5 pm Thursday evening. You must be present to win.


The annual business meeting of the MFOA will take place Thursday after the General Session. During this important meeting, Board members will be elected for a two-year term. Nominations should be submitted to the MFOA offices by October 5th, 2018.  The Nominating Committee will meet Thursday Morning, November 1st.
