The ASMC 2016 Survey of Defense Financial Professionals is now available on-line! It only takes about 5 minutes to complete. Your participation will provide important information on the collective opinions of defense financial managers, about status and trends in the defense FM environment. We value your opinion very much, and encourage ASMC member and non-member FMers to take the time to ensure your views are included in the survey results. Also, ASMC HQ will award $300, $200, and $100 respectively to the ASMC Chapters that have the highest, second highest, and third highest survey response rates among their members.

The Summer Edition of our Armed Forces Comptroller, “New Heights of Financial Management – A PDI 2016 Retrospective,” is Out! This issue is brought to life with articles focusing on Financial Management and ASMC’s 2016 PDI. Thanks much to those of you who help us save costs by electing to receive only the digital edition of our journal, accessible at http://bit.ly/ASMCpublications. Those of you receiving the print edition should have it in your mailbox shortly. Our contractor advised us the 10-question digital assessment for this edition will be available on our LMS NLT the end of this week. As a reminder, after reading the journal, ASMC members may sign in and take the assessment to receive two CPEs/CETs.
Consider submitting an article for an upcoming issue; find out themes of upcoming issues by visiting the AFC Journal Home Page http://bit.ly/ASMCjournal.
We thank Cotton & Company, Kearney & Company, Management Concepts, PenFed Credit Union, and Sehlke Consulting for advertising in this issue.
Enjoy our summer edition and, after you’ve read it, take it to the office to share with a friend!
Update your member profile at http://bit.ly/ASMCmemberprofile to provide us your current contact info, especially if you have recently relocated, so you continue to receive the Armed Forces Comptroller. Also, you can update your chapter designation when you move to a new location and associate with the chapter there – no longer necessary to send a note to HQ asking us to change your chapter designation. Lastly, updating to your personal email address in your profile avoids lapses in ASMC HQ commo with you in the event you change jobs and your work email address changes.
CDFM Module 1, 2, and 3 Refresher Courses are conveniently conducted year-round. All CDFM Refresher Courses offered are aligned with the DoD FM Certification Program (DFMCP), so in addition to CETs, you can receive “direct credit” toward meeting DFMCP requirements. Sessions are continuously updated at http://bit.ly/CDFMMod123Refresh. For those eligible to take advantage of the 5-day, government-funded Enhanced Defense Financial Management Training Course (EDFMTC), the schedule for FY2017 is posted on our website and you may use the EDFMTC Automated Registration tool to register for this course at http://bit.ly/ASMCedfmtc. Additionally, ASMC-licensed vendors offer open enrollment EDFMTC, Acquisition Business Management, and Fiscal Law courses, and can also deliver these courses at your chapter or organization.
