The Mission of the National Education Finance Conference (NEFC) is to provide a forum truly focused on school finance to enhance education for both young and adult learners. The Conference provides a venue for collaboration among legislators, postsecondary education, school district and state agency personnel, professional organizations, and researchers concerned with the importance of equity, adequacy, and efficiency concepts that affect state, local, and federal revenue generation, distribution, and expenditures.
