The Careers and Outreach Committee promotes careers in public finance through programs that are brought to college classes, clubs, and groups.  An outreach kit includes a power point presentation, brochures, scholarship applications and everything needed for a presentation that promotes a career in public sector finance.  Members are encouraged to liaison with the Colorado college they graduated from and use the outreach kit to make presentations to students and attend career fairs. 

CGFOA also supports a $1,000 Careers and Outreach Scholarship which is awarded to a junior in college who is preparing for a career in state or local government finance.  Careers and Outreach committee members solicit applications, review submissions, and make the final award decision.

If you are interested in being a liaison for your college and promoting careers in government finance, please contact 2020 Chair: Lore Nusser at
