The weather was beautiful and the course conditions were amazing. Food was plentiful and drinks on a hot day were a must. Overall, we hope you all enjoyed the day as much as we did, and we look forward to next year’s outing. For this annual event, we always want feedback. Please contact us with your comments so that we may continually make each year’s outing better than ever.

We wish to thank Dave Chuba, Jack Krise, and the rest of the team at Ridgewood Golf Course for being wonderful hosts.

We wish to thank Lorrie Harper for managing the beverage cart.

We had more sponsorships this year. Without our sponsors, holding a great event for our association would not be possible. These sponsors not only assist us with the cost, but also donated a lot of the door prizes we were able to provide for all attendees.


The Municipal Financial Officers of Ohio is a non-profit professional organization serving finance officers throughout northeastern Ohio. The association provides a system of networking, training and information sharing to develop and enhance the knowledge, skills, and performance of individuals responsible for municipal fiscal policy and management.

Our members are kept abreast of important issues and hot topics thanks to guest speakers at our monthly meetings.   Educational speakers and networking  promote excellence in government financial management.

If you are not already a member, join us to become an active member of the Municipal Financial Officers of Ohio!


Please note that there are three possible options for both municipal and associate members as described herein.

We continue to rely on reservations. If you sign up for either of the enhanced memberships, it will be just as important to make reservations and keep them if we are going to keep membership fees to a minimum. If you have any feedback on the proposed membership structure, please include them with your membership forms. Thanks,

A Option A is the standard membership and is the same as the memberships of the past and entitles the member to the directory, luncheons on a pay as you go basis, the Fall Fling at a reduced rate and the Winter Holiday Luncheon free of charge.
B Option B is the second level of membership and includes all of the benefits of a standard membership plus prepayment for the year for all luncheons. This will allow a municipality or associate to write one check for the year and eliminate the monthly paperwork. Membership privileges are transferable within an organization. That is to say that if the Finance Director is unable to attend a luncheon because of a scheduling conflict, any designee would be able to attend in his or her place.
C Option C is the third level of membership includes all of the benefits mentioned above plus a discount for the golf outing. Again, membership privileges for the premium level of membership are fully transferable within a municipality or organization.
