Happy 2017 from The CFO Leadership Council! For us, the arrival of a new year has always been a time that centers upon fresh, revitalized ideas, as we prepare to move forward with long anticipated plans. And, 2017 will be no exception! Adhering to our mission to “empower CFOs”, we are very excited to continue to provide you with all of the outstanding programs and unmatched networking opportunities that you have come to expect from us.
One Look Back. As we take a step forward, we also like to take a look back and, in doing so, spotlight our most valuable asset: you! Without our esteemed members, speakers, and sponsors, 2016 would not have been such a consequential year and we extend a big thank you to each and every one of you for a job well done. Together as a team, we continue to shape our reputation as the best “go to” resource for financial leaders. Highlights of 2016 included the addition of ten talented new hires combined with more than 140 programs with 6,500 attendees. And, as our growth soared, we are proud that we were able to launch eight new and flourishing chapters in Austin, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, Minneapolis/Saint Paul,Orange County, San Diego, and South Florida.
In addition, our 2016 CFO Talent Show continued its tradition of providing financial leaders with a day-long educational and networking experience unlike any other. And, our 2017 conference will be even better, focusing on the best practices of talent management: recruitment, motivation, and retention.
One Look Forward. We are confident that 2017 will be a year filled with many exciting opportunities for our members, as we anticipate the launching of eight new chapters within the next twelve months. As new chapters spark new ideas, you can look forward to more innovative program content and top notch peer networking. In addition, plans are already well in motion for The 2017 CFO Performance Conference, which will be held on Thursday, May 11 at the Boston Newton Marriott. This year’s event is dedicated to helping attendees achieve a sustainable competitive advantage for their firms. Early bird registration will be available soon, so be sure to check our blog regularly for the latest news and updates.
