About the State Debt Management Network

Who We Are

Our mission

As the go-to authority on the professional management of state-level debt, our mission is to lead, educate, and advocate efficient and responsible state debt management essential to meeting states’ financing needs.

The recognized authority on the professional management of state-level debt

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

SDMN was formed in 1991 as a network 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.

Our goal: The meaningful exchange of ideas and information

SDMN’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.

Improving the issuance and management of state debt

SDMN enhances and leverages its members’ comprehensive, collective know-how to advise governmental leaders and policy makers to improve the issuance and management of state debt.
