The National Association of State Treasurers has decided it will not hold its 2012 conference in Milwaukee, after Wisconsin elected a treasurer whose campaign promises included eliminating the office of the state treasurer. "[NAST] told me they were uncomfortable holding the convention in Milwaukee since I was actively seeking to eliminate the office of state treasurer...which runs contrary to their organizational interests," said treasurer Kurt Schuller in a news release. The association's conference, which will be held in summer 2012, will be put up for bid again. NAST was unavailable for comment.
