American Society of Military Comptrollers

The American Society of Military Comptrollers (ASMC) is a non-profit educational and professional organization for persons, military and civilian, involved in the overall field of military comptrollership. ASMC has developed and is now administering the Certified Defense Financial Manager (CDFM) program. Since the program began with Beta testing in December 1999, more than 10,000 persons have taken and passed the three-part examination and earned the designation of CDFM.

ASMC was established as the Society of Military Accountants and Statisticians in 1948 in San Antonio, Texas, and was open only to active duty officers. Since then, ASMC has expanded to include all Department of Defense (DoD) and Coast Guard financial management personnel. The national headquarters in Alexandria, Virginia, currently serves a growing professional society of approximately 18,000 individual members and 150 corporate members. Military comptrollership is defined as the profession of financial management in the DoD and Coast Guard. It includes the fields of accounting and finance, financial management, administrative support, auditing, budgeting, comptrollership, cost analysis, information management, management analysis, manpower management, program analysis, resource management, statistics, acquisitions, and many supporting activities.

ASMC's mission is to provide education and training to its membership base and to all professional DoD comptrollers and financial managers. As part of this mission, ASMC has held a Professional Development Institute (PDI) annually. At the PDI, experts and practitioners are given a platform from which to speak of the latest developments in the field of defense financial management, and to inform the attendees of proposed developments or changes in the field.
