The Association of Public Treasurers of the United States and Canada (APT US & C) encourages continuing education for all active members. The scholarship award program is designed to give assistance to any active member who needs financial assistance to attend an APT US & C Conference or to attend an affiliated APT US & C Institute.
The success of the APT US & C depends upon the degree of participation of its individual members; their commitment to excellence and motivation to carry out the purposes of the Association as set forth in the By-Laws. The APT US & C Service Award program is, therefore, established to encourage and recognize the outstanding voluntary participation and achievement of association members in furthering the purposes of the Association.
The Phillips Award, instituted in 1980, was designed to annually recognize one APT US & C member for professional leadership in and significant contribution to professional treasury management. The purpose of the Phillips Award, which is the Association’s most honored award, is to encourage development of innovative programs in public finance.
