Conference Training Tracks
Investment Management Track
These sessions are designed to bring public fund managers the latest developments in the area of investing public funds. Regardless of the
manager’s level of experience, topics will range from basic investing for public fund managers to more sophisticated portfolio management
strategies. Sessions on Portfolio Risk & Diversification, Investment Policy Formulation and Implementation, Yield Curve Analysis and
Investment Reporting and Accounting are but a few of the topics to be covered in this track.

Cash Management Track


Because cash management encompasses more than investing funds, the Cash Management track offered at the annual conference is designed
to give managers the most up to date information on the latest cash management practices. Managers should expect to receive training and
information on developing internal policies and procedures to manage cash in an efficient and organized manner. Some of the topics to be
covered at this year’s conference include Cash Flow Forecasting, Efficient Disbursement Management, Latest Developments in Electronic
Payment Processing, Procurement of Banking Services and How to Effectively Manage Banking Relationships.

Information Technology Track


Information Technology or “IT” includes computer hardware and software, operating systems, web-based information and applications,
telephones and other telecommunications products, video equipment and multimedia products, information kiosks, and office products.
The APT US & C conference will provide training, demonstrations, and latest trends in information technology via a variety of tracks and
exhibitors. Learning to leverage technology to enhance accountability, accuracy and improve performance is critical to managing financial
resources.

Debt Management Track


The Debt Management track will deal with the structuring, financing, term and ratios to enhance the attendee’s knowledge base on managing
local debt. The Debt Management track will address the appropriate uses, types and levels of debt. In addition, these training sessions will
address the latest GASB pronouncements. Attendees will also benefit from learning how to prepare and certify a Debt Policy for their
respective organizations.
