About the GIOA

What is the GIOA?

Investment focus is Number One!

Many other professional organizations have investments as a portion of their conferences or organizational focus. The GIOA’s main focus will be the day-to-day investment functions and duties of Government Investment Officers.

The organization is accepting applications from government Investment Officers to join its Board of Directors and committees.
