The year may be winding down, but FMS chapters have been busier than ever. Even before many shift into the season of traditional holiday gatherings and charity events, there continues to be plenty going on this fall.
September was an especially busy month all across the country, starting with the new Dallas-Fort Worth chapter, which continued to take root in the heart of Texas, as it staged its second official event – a presentation on cybersecurity – for a diverse group of local professionals. Meanwhile back east, the reigning Chapter of the Year in Philadelphia hosted a sweet and successful East Coast Regional Conference in Hershey, Pennsylvania, featuring three big days of networking and educational sessions on stress testing, CECL, liquidity management and much more. And in the Midwest, the Chicago chapter hosted another successful Fall Education Forum with presentations on business ethics, CECL implementation and tax reform – followed by a terrific Happy Hour, of course.
But there’s plenty more to come in the weeks and months ahead. The New York/New Jersey chapter has a busy schedule, with a dinner meeting in Hackensack on October 24, a networking and new member social in Wayne on November 15 and a half-day seminar in Asbury Park on November 27. Elsewhere, the Wisconsin chapter is hosting its Fall Education Seminar in Milwaukee on November 14.
So get out this fall to discover what FMS chapters are all about, and be sure to keep an eye on the education calendar as additional chapter events come online!
