Who We Are
The State Debt Management Network (SDMN) is the professional organization for the issuers and managers of state debt. Formed in 1991 as a network of the National Association of State Treasurers, SDMN has convened public officials from all branches of state government for nearly 30 years to share information on the issuance, management and oversight of state bonds and municipal securities.
Our mission is to lead, educate and advocate for efficient and responsible state debt management that is essential to meeting the financing needs of our states.
As stewards of the public’s financial resources, we collectively dedicate themselves to promoting and advocating practices and policies that improve the issuance and management of state debt.
We enhance and leverage our members’ comprehensive, collective know-how to advise governmental leaders and policy makers to improve the issuance and management of state debt.
We dedicate ourselves to welcome, understand and embrace the diversity of state level realities, as well as seeking to be understood.
We are driven by our members, the nation’s state debt managers, and led by our executive board.
