KY Treasurer Allison Ball named National Chair for SFOF

By Lorran Hart Ferguson

Frankfort, KY - Kentucky State Treasurer Allison Ball was named the State Financial Officers Foundation's National Chair at the fall meeting in Kansas City, her office announced. She is the first Kentuckian to serve as National Chair of the organization.

The State Financial Officers Foundation (SFOF) is a 501(c)3 non-partisan organization built on promoting good government financial decisions through free market principles. SFOF was founded on the belief that state financial officers should play a greater role in promoting responsible financial public policy.

"I am honored to be elected by state treasurers and financial officers nationwide to serve as National Chair for the State Financial Officers Foundation," Treasurer Ball said. "I am excited to lead the efforts of Treasurers across the country as we continue crafting fiscally responsible solutions to the financial problems facing our states and country."

"Treasurer Allison Ball is the type of leader our nation needs at the forefront of solving difficult financial problems," Derek Kreifels, President of SFOF stated. "Treasurer Ball is experienced in tackling tough financial issues head-on and we are looking forward to a continued partnership with her and her team."

Prior to being elected as National Chair, Treasurer Ball served as National Vice-Chair for the organization. As National Vice-Chair, Treasurer Ball served as a voice for SFOF's member financial officers and promoted policies giving state leaders greater control over the financial issues that impact their constituents.

In April, Treasurer Ball will also host the SFOF National Spring Conference in Lexington. For the first time in the organization's history, Treasurers from across the country will meet in Kentucky to discuss the top financial issues facing states across the nation.

Treasurer Ball is the 38th State Treasurer of the Commonwealth of Kentucky and the youngest female currently elected to a statewide office in the country.
