Message from the President

Welcome to the Municipal Forum of New York. We are a non-profit organization which serves members of the municipal industry through a series of events featuring public sector leaders. The Forum has always sought to embrace best practices and traditions in the public finance sector and pass them on to the next generation of bankers, underwriters, advisors, traders, analysts, insurers, public sector finance officers, and bond attorneys. Through our affiliate, the Youth Education Fund, we provide summer internships to outstanding graduating New York City public high school seniors headed to college who are also interested in finance. The Forum supports diversity, equity, and inclusion in its recruitment of our next leaders through the this internship program, by giving a voice to a diverse set of current leaders in our industry, and by dedicating itself to improving our communities. If you are a participant in the municipal securities industry, a government official or simply interested in the financing of our country’s public infrastructure, we encourage you to learn more about our organization and become a member.

–Michael Britchkow, President
