The Association of Public Finance Professionals of the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia (“APFP-DMV”) organizers: Craig Robinson (PFM Group), Jon Kirn and Anton Voinov (Siebert Brandford Shank & Co), Darrin Glymph (Orrick), Pam Holton-Byrd (Stifel), Peter Cunningham (BNY Mellon), and Ritta McLaughlin, have all been busy over the winter preparing for 2015.  Below are some of the highlights:

Organizational Structure
The organizational documents are in the final stages of completion.  APFP-DMV will be filing in the coming weeks and will become an official 501c(6) not-for-profit corporation.

Survey Results
In our efforts to improve as an organization and for future events, last November APFP-DMV conducted a survey about the organization as a whole and our two 2014 networking events.  APFP-DMV has received overwhelmingly positive responses with comments including, “Social atmosphere was good and key,” along with “Don’t change a thing”.  Some respondents would also like to see an educational component to the events.  All survey respondents agreed they would like to continue seeing additional APFP-DMV events.  The organizers are taking all suggestions into consideration and will try to incorporate them in the future.  Thank you to those who took the time to respond to the survey.

The APFP-DMV website is under construction.  We are working with Dan Rodriguez of ImageMaster in designing a robust website that will allow APFP-DMV to fulfill our goals as a professional organization.  The official website roll out is coming soon.

Membership & Committees
Stay tuned for another communication about how to become a member and how to participate in one of the committees.

A big “Thank You” to last year’s event sponsors (listed alphabetically): BNY Mellon, Image Master, Jefferies, Orrick Herrington & Sutcliffe, PFM Group, Siebert Brandford Shank & Co., Stifel, and TD Securities.  If you are interested in sponsoring any of our 2015 events, please contact Craig Robinson at for more details.

Upcoming Event
Our next event is scheduled for Wednesday, April 29, 2015.  Be on the lookout for a “Save the Date” in the coming weeks with more details.

Contact Us
We are always open to hearing further comments, recommendations and suggestions.  Please feel free to contact the group at or reach out to any of the organizers individually.

Stay warm this winter!
