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.  


The presenters of the Illinois Municipal Treasurers Institute are drawn from a variety of professional areas and institutions, including Eastern Illinois University, State of Illinois departments and agencies, local governments, and private enterprises.


All sessions of the Illinois Municipal Treasurers Institute will be held in Bloomington, Illinois at the Doubletree Hotel. Classes, meals and accommodations are all located in the same facility.  Participants also find time to enjoy touring the local sites, shopping, or utilizing the hotel facilities including the fitness center, complimentary wireless internet and indoor pool.
