NFMA's Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Initiatives

The DEI Committee began work in 2021 on initiatives to promote Diversity, Equity & Inclusion in the NFMA. The first priority was to propose a new mission statement to be incorporated into the NFMA constitution. Effective December 27, 2021, the NFMA's constitution was amended with the new mission statement. To read the current NFMA constitution, click here.

For a better understanding of the goals of the DEI Committee, watch this short report by Anne Ross, 2021 NFMA Chair, Neene Jenkins and Nicole Byrd, Co-Chairs of the DEI Committee. For more information about the NFMA's DEI initiatives click here.

 

Educational Programs

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.
