Our pride and joy!
In 1981, in direct support of the certification program, the IMTA worked to establish the Municipal Treasurers Institute. This Institute was designed from the beginning to fulfill the educational requirements necessary for certification at both the state and national levels. The first Institute was held at Northern IL University, Aug 1982. Institute was moved to Eastern IL University in 1984.
The certification program and the Treasurers Institute have been a tremendous undertaking, involving much time on the part of the IMTA board of directors, its certification Committee, and the host universities involved.
The Treasurers Institute is an intensive four-day residential program of continuing professional education for municipal treasurers, general finance officers, and certified public accountants.

Take Advantage of Early Bird Registration Prices.
Treasurers, finance officers and support staff have a need for continuing professional education to develop and maintain the skills and knowledge necessary to help achieve the prudent person’s rule of financial management. The Illinois Municipal Treasurers Institute (IMTI) is an intensive training program which provides 100 hours of instruction for municipal treasurers, finance officers and support staff. The program benefits participants by focusing on:
1. Perfecting the skills needed to successfully operate a governmental finance office
2. Diversifying educational sessions geared toward the governmental entity’s size
3. The most current topics, technology and legislation impacting financial functions
4. Networking opportunities to build peer relationships
5. Sustaining a Nationally Recognized Certification Process
The IMTI course is divided into three phases (one phase per year). Upon completion of each phase, the participant receives a certificate of attendance. Upon completion of all three phases the participant is awarded an IMTI completion certificate. Completion of the Institute also provides points for IMTA certification, and credit toward other financial certifications like the Certified Municipal
Finance Administrator (CMFA) as awarded by the Association of Public Treasurers - United States and Canada.
Advanced Seminar is designed to offer treasurers who have completed all three phases and earned the IMTI certification, a shorter but more intense series of presentations relating to today’s challenges. The program is flexible in that participants may attend Advanced Seminar for 16 hours of training, or for 8 hours of training.
