The Municipal Finance Officers Association of Ohio will be holding its Annual Fall Conference in conjunction and concurrently with the Ohio Municipal League.
Registering for the conference requires a valid email address. Registration confirmation and materials will be sent to paid attendees on October 16th, 2019. Please feel free to print out these materials in advance and bring them with you to the conference and/or download to your personal electronic devices such as an iPad or tablet. Some presenters may bring handouts with them that were not made available for distribution prior to the conference.
