As our members begin to assess the damages to their communities, many of our members have been asking how they can help. The FGFOA, along with the Florida League of Cities (FLC), Florida Court Clerks and Comptrollers (FCCC), and other statewide associations will be sending out updates as they become available. Finance professionals will play an important part in the recovery and tracking of data as clean-up begins. Debris monitoring services are just one of many areas where finance professionals will have dramatic influence on reimbursements and recovery.

To connect members who have specific information needs, FGFOA has set up a new list serve for Hurricane Ian discussions. If you need assistance, please join and post your question. If you have been thru a storm in the past and can offer assistance to fellow members who need help, please join the list serve to offer advice.

The 2022 School of Governmental Finance (SOGF) was scheduled to begin on October 15, 2022 at the Luminary hotel in downtown Ft. Myers. While the hotel and convention center did not suffer any damage from the storm, a testament to current building codes, we will need to cancel the 2022 SOGF. As one of the only hotels in the area that did not suffer damage, we were informed late this morning that FEMA has commandeered the hotel to use as its headquarters to support the recovery efforts in Southwest Florida. While we are very disappointed that the school will not take place as planned, your committee and Board of Directors has been hard at work preparing alternatives. While not ideal, the FGFOA will hold a “Virtual” school in early November. Details on the courses offered and registration will be coming out in the next few days.

If you have registered for the SOGF, your registration and hotel room will automatically be canceled, and a full refund of your registration fee will be processed in the next 30 - 45 days. If you have a hotel reservation at one of the overflow hotels, you will be responsible for canceling your room as the FGFOA does not have control over those rooms.

       Please look for additional information on the revised 2022 SOGF on our website, www.fgfoa.org
