WHAT IS THE EMERGING LEADERS PROGRAM?
The CFO Leadership Council created the Emerging Leaders program to recognize, honor, and mentor budding financial professionals who have potential to become “Rockstar CFOs”. This is a member-driven initiative, as many of the veteran members of the Council wanted to share the benefits of their experience and wisdom with the next generation of CFOs.

HOW ARE CANDIDATES CHOSEN?
The Emerging Leadership team reviews each nomination for the candidate’s commitment to growth, potential for advancement, the ability to put learning to work, and their commitment to community service.
This program will enable us to fulfill our mission of Empowering CFOs, while also helping you to strengthen relationships with these future leaders. We are confident that this program will develop a cohort of financial leaders with the strategic, leadership and technical skills to lead their organizations.Jack McCullough
