It is truly an honor to sponsor the main event of such a prestigious and dedicated organization as the CSMFO. The Pun Group endeavors to serve the top businesses in California, so there is no better place for us to be prominently represented.

The Pun Group, the business and tax advisory with big firm expertise and small firm values, announced today that it is one of the Diamond Sponsors of Back to the Capital -- the California Society of Municipal Finance Officers Annual Conference, to be held January 31 to February 3, 2023 in Sacramento, CA.

The conference, at the newly renovated SAFE Credit Union Convention Center in Sacramento, is the main yearly event of the CSMFO, the statewide organization serving all California municipal finance professionals. It is dedicated to promoting excellence in financial management through innovation, continuing education, and professional development.

The Pun Group, headed by Managing Partner/CEO Kenneth H. Pun, is one of the fastest growing independent public accounting and advisory firms in the southwestern U.S. It is a diamond sponsor of the conference, along with California Class, Caltrust, Chandler Asset Management, Client First Technology Consulting, HDL Companies, LSL and MGO.

Diamond Sponsorship includes more exposure at the event, which is the largest conference for government finance professionals in California. CSMFO is also the preeminent resource for promoting excellence in government finance in California, promoting discourse between professionals seeking assistance and solutions for their agencies.

“It is truly an honor to sponsor the main event of such a prestigious and dedicated organization as the CSMFO,” said Pun. “The Pun Group endeavors to serve the top businesses in California, so there is no better place for us to be prominently represented.”

“During the height of the pandemic, we were stuck all day behind computers and phones, at work and at home. Now that we have emerged from isolation, why would we want to experience life like that again?” asked Rich Lee, CSMFO President, Finance Director, City of San Mateo. “There will be plenty of moments at the conference that will forge wonderful memories for each of us. So, resist the temptation to pick up your phone to record or livestream and remember how fortunate we all are to be in the same room with one another.”

Wednesday’s opening session will feature Brett Culp, an award-winning documentary filmmaker whose work inspires audiences to embrace and accept change, empower others, and spark innovation. His in-person and virtual keynotes leave audiences better equipped to master their leadership challenges.

Back by popular demand, Thursday’s featured speaker will be Chris Thornberg, founder of Beacon Economics LLC. Under his leadership, the firm has become one of the most respected research organizations in California, serving public and private sector clients across the United States. In 2015, Dr. Thornberg also became Director of the UC Riverside School of Business Center for Economic Forecasting and Development and an Adjunct Professor at the School.

The closing session on Friday will feature Colette Carlson, a human behavior expert and CPAE Hall of Fame motivational keynote speaker who teaches audiences how to transform relationships through the power of connected conversations.
