State Treasurer Josh Haeder Elected President of National Association of State Treasurers (NAST)

Pierre, SD: South Dakota State Treasurer Josh Haeder was unanimously selected to serve as the 2023 President of the National Association of State Treasurers during the organization’s annual conference last week.

“It’s an honor to be selected by Treasurers from around the nation to serve as the next President of the National Association of State Treasurers,” Haeder said.

“NAST serves as the nation’s foremost authority for responsible state treasury programs and related financial practices, policies, and education. South Dakota has a balanced budget, we have one of the best public retirement systems in the nation, we focus on protecting money from fraud, and are now on the cutting edge of technology implementation. South Dakota has been a leader in returning unclaimed property to citizens, reaching thousands of South Dakotans through our marketing campaigns. As the NAST President-elect, I’m excited to collaborate with my colleagues, continue to grow our organization, and share South Dakota’s successes with Treasurers across the nation.”

Haeder’s term as president begins in January 2023. He is the first South Dakota President of NAST since Treasurer Dave Volk was elected to serve as president of NAST in 1976-77

Haeder is currently serving as the 2022 Senior Vice President of NAST.

NAST’s membership is comprised of all state treasurers or state finance officials with comparable responsibilities from the United States, its commonwealths, territories, and the District of Columbia, along with employees of these agencies.

Before being elected South Dakota’s 33rd state Treasurer, Josh Haeder was the managing partner of Haeder Organization, LLC based in Huron, SD. Haeder Organization is a property management company that focuses on affordable housing and lodging.

Treasurer Haeder has been married to his wife Amanda for ten years and they have two young daughters.

  1. Josh and I ran together for the legislature when we both were nobodies. Barely a decade later, Josh is winning statewide elections and fronting a national organization of his peers. (In the mystical justice of life, I remain a happy nobody.)

    I always knew that Josh was destined for big things. He’s doing a fine job as state treasurer and represents South Dakotans well to the rest of the country. Best of all — as he’d tell you every time — he’s blessed with a wonderful family. Go, Josh, go!

    1. In the mystical justice of life, Cliff is the former president of the South Dakota Associated Press Managing Editors.

      Your name on a comment carries weight, Cliff. Keep using it.

  2. Way to put SD on the High Bar Josh! From this group of penny pushers being chosen as the Chair is a very big deal and makes us all look good living here. Thanks for all the hard work!!!

    And Cliff I for one know you do many great things not ever needing credit for.

  3. Young Mr. Haeder is in the fast lane, and he’s a pretty swell fellow for being a minor albeit statewide politician. Good you, Mr. Haeder, and I like the cut of your jib.
