The Association for Budgeting and Financial Management (ABFM) of the American Society for Public Administration (ASPA) has established a Secretariat in its by-laws. Article VI, Section 5 specifies the functions for the Secretariat who serves as the secretary and archivist for ABFM. The Secretariat is important to the continued maintenance and growth of ABFM as a professional services organization. The ABFM Secretariat brings positive visibility to the hosting institution and program through the website, newsletters, elections, and acknowledgement at the annual conference. The ABFM is now accepting proposals from institutions interested in serving as the ABFM Secretariat.
Currently, the Secretariat is Donijo Robbins and is based at Grand Valley State University.
The Secretariat fulfills the role of Secretariat, Secretary/Archivist. The Secretariat is expected to maintain section relationships with ASPA and facilitate the operations of ABFM.
