      best practice in their areas of interest
   - share their ideas and experience to help others

      management across the sector

      accounting and financial management.

Our Vision
Our Vision is for the Community of Finance Professionals to be recognised and valued as an integral element of accounting and financial management improvement in the public sector.

Our Value Proposition
The Community of Finance Professionals will operate as a collective of practitioners and interested parties to serve as a networking and self-help group, and to share information and experiences in dealing with the challenges of financial management improvement.
In pursuing our Mission, over time the Community’s activities will include:
•  organising briefing sessions, forums and workshops
•  facilitating the rapid dissemination of information and access to shared knowledge via internet

•  facilitating active input from Community members to financial management reform initiatives and

   the ongoing reform agenda
•  establishing strategic links with other organisations and networks whose interests align with the

   Community’s Mission.
Our Value Proposition is based upon the principle that the Community does not compete with, or duplicate the work of, other networks and bodies but instead connects Community members with these resources.

•  people working in accounting and finance roles across the NSW public sector
