The Georgia Fiscal Management Council (FMC), a nonprofit organization, began in 1968 as the Fiscal Officers’ Council. At that time, membership was limited to one financial representative, usually the fiscal officer, from each State agency. In November 1973, the membership was expanded to include any State employee whose job was related to fiscal management. This change brought in audit, accounting, and budget personnel from the various agencies and resulted in the organization’s name being changed to the State of Georgia Fiscal Management Council.
