Several local and national federal organizations offer benefits and services to civilian and military personnel. None, however, are as specialized in the financial management career field as the American Society of Military Comptrollers.
Membership is available to individuals who are actively employed in military comptrollership, as active duty or civilian personnel. Associate membership is available for persons who do not meet the qualifications, but who demonstrate an interest in the field. Employees of private sector companies who are interested in ASMC membership may join under the corporate membership program.
ASMC promotes education and supports the development and advancement of its civilian and military members involved in the comptroller field. The organization sponsors research, provides professional programs on current issues, and fosters the exchange of new comptroller techniques and approaches. ASMC was first established as the Society of Military Accountants and Statisticians in 1948 and was open only to active duty officers. The organization has since expanded into 152 chapters with over 18,000 individual members, to include all Department of Defense and Coast Guard financial management personnel worldwide. The Sequoyah Chapter, located at Tinker Air Force Base, serves the Oklahoma City community. Sequoyah Chapter members include Team Tinker and Will Rogers Air National Guard personnel.
