Professional Development Institute
PDI 2019 Registration is now open! Register here!
The National Professional Development Institute (PDI) is the premier training event of the American Society of Military Comptrollers (ASMC), and will take place on May 29-May 31 in San Antonio, TX (with Pre-PDI May 27-28). Defense financial managers in the public and private sectors will converge for the three-day event to enhance their resource management knowledge and skills, as well as share best practices toward meeting the complex challenges of today’s fiscal environment.
The mission of ASMC is the continuing professional development of its members, of those within the Defense financial management community, and those who serve it. In addition to ASMC’s organization-wide PDI held every year, local chapters and regions also host annual training days. Regional PDI’s offer additional education and training opportunities within each geographical region, as well as leadership opportunities to chapter members. They also function as outreach to potential new members and local leadership.
The PDI 2019 program will include general and Service Day sessions, mini-courses, and workshops, focusing on defense financial management competency areas. Speakers will discuss current issues in DoD and US Coast Guard financial management operations. The Mini-courses will provide DoD participants the opportunity to obtain direct credit toward meeting certain DoD FM Certification requirements at Levels 2 and 3 of the program.
Beyond the 21 CPE credits available to attendees, the PDI provides a valuable forum for participants from Service HQs, major commands, and installation level (as well as from combatant commands and defense agencies) to collaborate with leadership, peers, vendors, and clients. This event also showcases individuals and teams who have been recognized by ASMC for their excellent contributions to the field of defense financial management.
