State Debt Management Network

State Debt


The State Debt Management Network is the professional organization of the issuers and managers of state debt.

The Network was formed in 1991 as an affiliate of the National Association of State Treasurers and brings together public officials from all branches of state government to share information on issuance, management and oversight of public debt.

The Network’s goal is to provide a forum for the meaningful exchange of ideas and information to states in the areas of capital planning, debt issuance, and debt management. Together, members work to enhance debt issuance and management practices through training and the exchange of ideas and innovations.
