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 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. 

    Registration for PDI 2019 will be available the last week of February!  Payment is required at the time of registration so please be sure you have obtained authorized funding and understand your organization’s regulations for payment.  Early bird registration for ASMC members is $595 (same as last year).  Please note the registration rate changes at 11:59 pm EST on 1 May to $695 for ASMC members.
