State Treasurer Hosts CPIM Conference in Wilmington
COLUMBUS - State Treasurer of Ohio Josh Mandel hosted the Ohio Treasury’s first 2012 Center for Public Investment Management (CPIM) conference today in Wilmington, Ohio. The Conference, hosted at Roberts Conference Centre, allowed public funds managers to obtain continuing education credits, required annually by Ohio law.
“The CPIM Conference series allows Ohio’s public funds managers to further their continuing education in order to stay atop on the latest news and best practices in the world of public finance,” said Treasurer Mandel. “The Ohio Treasury is taking a message of fiscal responsibility around the state and online in order to provide public funds managers with excellent opportunities to continue their financial education.”
The Wilmington Conference offered 12 different courses from basic cash management to understanding the finer details of debt management. As part of the Ohio Treasury’s continuing effort to leverage technology, online courses are also now offered. Six total online course selections are now offered by the Ohio Treasurer’s office for public funds managers with more than four years of experience.
Certain public financial officials are required under Ohio law to receive continuing training and education in the areas of finance, investments, cash management, debt issuance, debt management and ethics.
