About the 15 GFOAT Regions

The Government Finance Officers Association (GFOAT) has 15 sub-state regions (regions 2-16) that were formed in 1958. Regions exist to promote interests in city government on a regional level, facilitate the exchange of information among the cities in a region, and assist the GFOAT Board of Directors in formulating policy that represents the diverse interests of the state.

Regional Map and Officers

The map and list shows the location and boundaries of each of GFOAT’s 15 sub-state regions. There may be at least one Regional Officer for each of the regions designated by the Texas Municipal League. Each Regional officer will be selected by the members in that area. If lack of membership participation or geographic diversification within a region results in a region not having an officer, the Regional officer position for that region shall remain vacant until such time that conditions warrant the role of Regional officer. During any time span that a Regional officer position is vacant, members in that region can rely on their GFOAT Board Area Representative for distribution of pertinent information. It is the responsibility of the officers in each region to grow the membership and encourage and promote professional development.
