CFO Forum - Virtual


Aug. 16 - Aug 17

Prices Start At $695*

The CFO Forum tackles the top issues CFOs face today, including emerging tax and accounting strategies, CECL implementation, deposit funding sources, risk management, cybersecurity and more.

Be prepared to build your CFO network with plenty of networking opportunities and peer-to-peer collaboration throughout the event.

Many high-performing banks have initiated a fundamental shift in the CFO role making the CFO a critical strategic business partner across the financial institution. Such evolution has encouraged the transformation of the CFO from solely traditional tax functions to now include analysis of big data, technology systems, and efficiency strategies.
