Mission Statement: SFOF’s mission is to promote fiscally responsible public policy, partner with key stakeholders, and educate the public about the role of finance in a free market economy.
In an age when people are skeptical of elected officials, state financial officers have the public’s trust. Several polls have shown that when it comes to state fiscal matters, state treasurers and state auditors are trusted nearly 70% of the time over their state’s governor or member of congress.
At SFOF we’re here to help encourage one another to be good stewards of that trust and become better public servants by sharing best practices and hosting honest discussions with financial industry and political leaders. That’s what we continue to do at our two annual national gatherings.
Our politics in federal and state government is more polarizing than it has ever been. That’s why today it’s more important than ever before that state governments do all they can to protect these statewide elected office’s and give them the resources they need to be a true check and balance on every tax dollar being processed through their office.
SFOF is founded on the belief that state financial officers nationally are playing a much greater role in promoting fiscally responsible public policy. SFOF continues to organize a select group of leaders from the public and private sectors to help state financial officers develop and implement various free market, pro-growth policies.
Today, the states in the U.S. with the soundest financial condition and with the highest credit ratings, are those that have been managed conservatively with small government, pro-growth policies. We believe these results are the direct outcome of such policies.
As we look to the future, SFOF is the premier conservative organization bringing elected and appointed financial officers together with the nation’s top private sector companies and organizations. On behalf of our financial officers we thank our private sector partners and national meeting sponsors for all that they do to support SFOF!
