Treasurer Lynn Fitch was elected the new
Chair of the State Financial Officers Foundation (SFOF) this morning at the
Fall meeting of the organization in Chicago, Illinois.
“It is a true honor to be elected by my colleagues from across the U.S.
to run this organization in the coming year,” said Treasurer Lynn Fitch.
“SFOF provides such a critical platform for sharing ideas and best
practices between the states and for working together to meet the needs of the
citizens we represent. I am looking
forward to the opportunity to lead these efforts.”
The State Financial Officers Foundation was established to help
treasurers and other state financial officers promote fiscally responsible,
conservative policy ideas. It provides
an opportunity for those involved in executing public policy to meet with and
discuss ideas with those in the private sector and academia. It currently consists of 19 treasurers, CFOs,
and controllers elected or appointed to office across the country.
Prior to today’s election, Treasurer Fitch served as SFOF’s Vice
Chair. In addition, she has just
completed her second term as Vice President for the Southern Region for the
National Association of State Treasurers, a separate national network of
treasurers and other state financial officers.
