About the NASACT Hall of Fame
The NASACT Hall of Fame was created in 2015 to recognize an elite group of individuals who over their professional careers have made major and enduring impacts on state government financial management. Hall of Fame inductees are not selected based upon a single achievement, but rather to recognize careers filled with significant achievements and contributions and to recognize those who have reached the highest levels of performance in the profession.
