2023-2024 FEI Detroit Chapter Officers

Our chapter is known as the premier financial podium in SE Michigan. Delivering high-quality speakers and content, growing and retaining members, and ensuring effective succession planning continue to effectively position the Detroit chapter and our members for success. We maintain a special emphasis on the "Rise of Detroit" by providing Financial Executives with dynamic speaker presentations, opportunities for career development, networking, and unique experiences at each of our events.

We hold eight dinner meetings, two social evenings, and a variety of Hot Topic sessions and webinars each year.  Our dinner meetings are held at The Detroit Athletic Club and other venues surrounding the metro Detroit area. The evening includes a CPE career development session, a CPE professional development session, networking, dinner, and a top-notch CPE keynote presentation. Follow us on Facebook and LinkedIn to keep to date on upcoming events!

The FEI Detroit chapter has seen continuous membership growth. Currently, the membership count is nearly 500 members, representing a broad cross-section of Metro Detroit’s financial community. Angela Barr and Andy Emmert, Co-VPs of Member Services, could use your assistance in growing and retaining members. If you are interested in volunteering on the membership committee, please reach out to Sofia Konstance Nyland, Administrator, at [email protected].

Our eight advocacy and accounting policy committees help develop positions and statements that affect the financial climate in which you do business.
