Educational Programs

Due to COVID-19, the NFMA has had to cancel in-person events through the end of 2020, and extending into 2021. In place of in-person events, the NFMA offers virtual events in the form of webinars.  Please watch the NFMA Event Calendar for news of upcoming webinars, and the return of in-person events.

Traditionally, the NFMA has held an Annual Conference each spring. The conference provides members with the opportunity to hear presentations, to meet with members of other Constituent Societies of the NFMA, and to contribute their efforts to the overall advancement of the NFMA. At the conference, the NFMA presents awards to individuals and organizations for extraordinary contributions to municipal analysis. For a list of past award recipients, click here.

The NFMA has also presented its Introduction to Municipal Bond Credit Analysis each fall, covering a wide range of topics/sectors geared to the needs of new analysts.  Advanced Seminars each fall and winter cover in-depth current topics of importance to the industry for seasoned analysts.

Constituent Societies hold educational events for members. Many of these events are open to members of other societies within the NFMA, and are posted on the NFMA's Event Calendar.
