CONFERENCE HISTORY

The Illinois Municipal Treasurers Association was established to promote the general and professional interests of municipal treasurers in Illinois and their respective municipalities: to obtain a higher standard of efficiency, to improve service and relations with allied institutions, and to inspire friendly and fraternal feelings among the members.

In the beginning, there was only one municipal treasurer's association --it was based in California.  Most of its members were naturally from California, although its membership was open to all. There was a need for an association that could concentrate on the needs of municipalities and their treasurers here in Illinois.

Our Illinois Association met as a committee during its formulation period, which lasted nearly two years. The IMTA was officially organized during the Illinois Municipal League Conference at the Chicago Hilton in the fall of 1973 with seventeen treasurers as its charter membership.
