GFOA is the professional association of nearly 15,000 state, local and provincial finance officers in the United States and Canada.

In his role on the Committee on Governmental Budgeting and Management, Long will advise GFOA and recommend policies in budgeting, management and related public finance areas. The committee actively promotes the professionalism of budget practitioners through the development of recommended practices and researching various initiatives.

The Budget Awards Program is designed to encourage governments to prepare budget documents of the highest quality to meet the needs of decision-makers and citizens.

Long, who has over 25 years of experience in government budgeting and finance, leads, plans and manages the county's financial and human resource functions, and oversees a county budget of approximately $4.8 billion. CFO of one of the largest jurisdictions in the United States, Long joined Fairfax County Government as a budget analyst in 1977 and was promoted to director of the Office of Management and Budget in 1989, a position he held until his appointment as chief financial officer in 1997.
