The Illinois GFOA and our members rely on mutual support to meet the ever-evolving challenges of government finance.  Our staff and extremely active committees work together to plan, develop and administer services and programs in career development, technical assistance, publications and training.  The Illinois GFOA also represents members' interests before the Illinois General Assembly.
