Treasurers' Association of Virginia



We live and serve in unprecedented times. Our world has not seen a pandemic of this magnitude in over 100 years, and the treasurer’s offices across Virginia have faced resulting budget, legislative, and daily challenges unimagined in 2019.

Gathering for fellowship and education at our annual conference this year was an impossibility. Without a second thought, all of our officers and board members extended their terms for another year, and we are working hard to put forward agenda items important to our organization. With offices closing, jurisdictions in need of revenue, and dealing with the unknown, we are all working with our local governments to help our constituents. I am so proud of the treasurers across the Commonwealth for the way we are dealing with the current set of challenges.

At this critical time, it is imperative that each treasurer, deputy, and staff member remain active in the Treasurers’ Association. We are much stronger when we all work together as a team to achieve our common goals. I urge each of you to participate in the education classes and on our various committees. I am also grateful to those who have taken the time to complete our surveys and share your ideas with the Board.

I am humbled and honored to be president of the Treasurers’ Association of Virginia, and I will continue to work hard to make you proud. I have enjoyed getting to know each of you a little bit better this past year as we have worked together, and I promise to remain engaged in listening to your thoughts, as I work diligently to further the goals of our association. I look forward to seeing you in person at our 2021 conference in Harrisonburg, Virginia!
