Make-A-Wish_icon-vector-blue_119_logo_312x214-976532-edited.pngOf course, year after year, we are always very enthusiastic about the selection of programs and speakers that we are able to offer, but, to us, this conference is more than just a professional development opportunity.  It’s a chance to give back to our community and help those less fortunate and in need, especially children.   With this goal in mind, we are proud to devote the evening portion of our event to our annual charity fundraiser, CFO Social For A Cause.  This year’s choice is Make-A-Wish Of Massachusetts and Rhode Island, an organization which grants the ultimate wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions, enriching their world with hope, strength, and joy.  With your help and our combined contributions, we can all get together to meet our goal of $10,000 and uplift the quality of a child’s life by making a dream come true.  Check out our featured Make A Wish donation page and, then, help us to make a far fetched wish become a reality.  Any amount is welcome, encouraged, and greatly appreciated. And, tell your family and friends about it, too! It’s a great way for anyone to reach out and make a difference. 

Further conference updates will continue to follow in the weeks ahead, so stay tuned to our blog for the latest news.  In the meantime, register today and please contact us with any questions.
