As a member of The Institute of Financial Operations, you belong to the world's largest and most diversified financial operations association and our goal for 2014 is to do what it takes to keep it that way. This means you can expect big things in the coming year but before we say goodbye to 2013, we wanted to take a moment to highlight some of our recent successes and enhanced member benefits that were made possible because of you.
One of our largest endeavors this year was the creation of our Leadership Academy. The Institute of Financial Operations, in partnership with Northeastern University recently developed and launched this one of a kind program designed for individuals like you who aspire to enhance their professional development through continued education. In 2013, we put a great deal of focus on bringing you improved e-learning offerings, top notch conferences and events, timely and relevant information and news, increased networking opportunities with like-minded professionals and service providers using our expanded social media outlets and on the local level as well. Also in 2013, we created The IFO's Foundation, a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt corporation. Through the creation of this foundation, you have access to greater research and better educational resources than ever before.
What's coming in 2014?
The IFO continues to grow its outreach into additional international markets, expanding your community and enhancing your ability to benchmark your processes worldwide; offering additional certification programs will be key in establishing international recognition of your professional designations; and building onto the award-winning FinancialOps magazine by offering both print and a leading-edge 3-D digital FinancialOps publication to enhance and entice learning.
