“Debt Instruments and Financing Alternatives for Local Governments”

Coaching Webinar

Thursday, September 7, 2017 – 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM (Eastern Time)

ICMA Practice Areas: 10, 11 and 13

Deciding whether, when, how, and with whom to finance capital projects in local government is an extremely important financial decision. Making the correct decision could save millions of dollars and making a decision to use a different option could unnecessarily cost the government millions of dollars. There are numerous financing options available for local governments, and the details and the alternatives for each one can be complicated. Sergio Masvidal will present an informative program on this important topic and will address questions from attendees to assist them with their financing needs. This is a timely opportunity for managers to invite their finance people to participate in an FCCMA webinar to prepare for their recently adopted budgeted projects, as well as prepare for future project needs.


  • Sergio Masvidal, Managing Director, PFM Financial Advisors
