committees: private companies
The Committee on Private Companies (CPC) was established in June 1997 for the purpose of addressing the professional needs of financial executives employed in private and closely held companies, and to provide a voice for their interests within FEI. CPC tracks developments affecting private and closely held companies, promotes information exchange among interested FEI members and oversees the development of programs, products and services that address private and closely held company issues.
CPC, through its work and communications provides a link between FEI's headquarters, FEI's other national technical committees and the FEI chapters. CPC is also authorized to formulate FEI position statements on matters affecting private and closely held companies and to communicate those positions to other organizations, government agencies, the academic community and other external parties of interest.
CPC has a responsibility to represent the views, attitudes and opinions of the FEI membership while maintaining high standards of professional integrity and competence.
