The National Professional Development Institute (PDI) is the premier training event of the American Society of Military Comptrollers (ASMC), that took place June 1-3 in Orlando, Florida (with Pre-PDI May 30-31). 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 PDI 2016 program included general and Service Day sessions, mini-courses, and workshops focused on defense financial management competency areas. Speakers discussed current issues in DoD and US Coast Guard financial management operations. Most importantly, the Mini-courses provided 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 provided a valuable forum for participants from Service HQs, major commands, and installation levels to collaborate with leadership, peers, vendors, and clients. This event also showcased individuals and teams who have been recognized by ASMC for their excellent contributions to the field of defense financial management.

We hope you had the opportunity to join us this past June in Orlando. Our next PID will take place in San Diego, CA.
