CFO Forum

"CFO Forum"  is a quarterly dinner meeting/ discussion forum for corporate and divisional Chief Financial Officers, Vice Presidents of Finance, Treasurers, Controllers and other senior financial executives from area companies generally with annual revenues between $50 million and $2 billion+.  The group has been gathering for over 10 years  and 250 CFOs having attended, with a growing group of "regulars."  A typical dinner discussion group has a CFO leading the discussion on an important topic of interest, with approximately 20 CFOs attending. We also typically issue 2 CPE credits for each meeting.

Value proposition:  This exclusive, strictly peer-to-peer, meeting is an excellent forum for CFOs and other corporate financial executives to share experiences and best practices while developing relationships in a convenient, enjoyable and relaxing setting.

          "The CFO forum is a great place for corporate financial executives as it allows you to network with your peers on business issues and get their input and perspective as well as give you other insights into different business issues you may not have encountered yet," Ray Cardonne, CFO, DLB Associates

          "I have found ACG NJ's CFO Forum to be a great forum for senior finance people to share ideas and best practices to help manage the challenges that all Finance organizations are faced with in today’s economy," Kevin Kilroy, Head of Business Planning, RBU NA, Linde Group
