Award-winning. Thought-leading. In print and online.
We are committed to bringing our members and other readers a wealth of information, in print and online. In addition to the articles you will find on this news portal, we publish an award-winning magazine each quarter, as well as topic-specific supplements that feature articles by industry thought leaders. Our print publication evolved from the merger of the magazines of three of our legacy organizations: AP Matters (IAPP), AR Matters (IARP), and today (TAWPI), which became Financial Operations Matters and has been rebranded as Financial Ops.
