Debt Issuance and
Administration Series

Elected officials have a broad range of backgrounds, and many begin their positions with the desire and need to further develop their knowledge and expertise related to public finance. CDIAC designed the Elect>Ed series to provide the foundational content needed to guide prudent public finance decisions by the elected officials and members of governing bodies that serve over 4,000 local agencies throughout California.

All eight modules can be accessed in CDIAC’s Education Portal. The programs are free to access with a registered account. Certificates for each module are automatically issued upon completion.

"Effectively using and managing debt is critical for local governments. These modules continue my office’s efforts to ensure that California’s decision makers, at all levels, have the resources they need to make informed decisions on behalf of all Californians."

State Treasurer Fiona Ma 

"This educational program is really designed to educate and assist elected officials in making critical financial decisions for their districts and agencies really in a more informed way. (...) Treasurer and tax-collectors up and down the state support and endorse this program. (...) It is extremely beneficial."
