  • Over 4,500 defense financial management professionals converged on St. Louis (and 1,500 logged in online) to attend the American Society of Military Comptrollers (ASMC) Professional Development Institute (PDI), May 29–June 2, 2023. As ASMC celebrated its 75th anniversary, Management Concepts also acknowledged its 50th anniversary and had the honor of supporting PDI 2023 as the jubilee sponsor. Throughout the week PDI offered a variety of learning and networking opportunities, with Certified Defense Financial Manager (CDFM) training courses, mini-courses, sessions, an exhibit hall, receptions, and additional events and activities for ASMC members. Although it would be impossible to recount all of these in full, we’ll recap the highlights and welcome comments from other attendees.
