Meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month during the lunch period, in Grand Rapids. Meetings are typically offered from September through May, excluding December. Our meetings offer an opportunity to discuss financial management issues with other finance professionals and to hear formal presentations on topics such as domestic and international finance, cash management, investments, economics, forecasting, bank relationships, risk management, legislation, technology, and more. Emphasis is placed in the planning of our programs to ensure that the topics are timely and rewarding to our membership. All meetings qualify for CTP and CCM credits. Most meetings will qualify for continuing education credits applicable to other financial certifications.
