A Message From Our President - February 2020


Greetings FEI Members, Sponsors and Friends,
Our chapter is having a great year thus far, earmarked by some fantastic programs and chapter events. Of particular note was the mergers and acquisitions panel in January. Thank you to our esteemed panelists for sharing your insight on this important topic. I think I speak for all attendees when I say that this program was extremely engaging and very educational.
In March, we’ll visit Steinbrenner Field for an evening at the ballpark. We hope that you’ll join us for this unique program and networking event. Food, beverage and your ticket to the game are included in your registration fee – fun with fellow finance executives is no additional cost! This is a great event to invite a colleague to attend.
As we head towards the summer months, our Board will begin planning for the 2020 – 2021 Program Year. As we do so, we’re looking to get your feedback and suggestions. Was there an event this year that you’d like to see again? Or a company you’d be interested in visiting next year? If you have ideas for potential venues or speakers for upcoming events, we’d love to hear from you. Please contact a board member, or connect with one of us at an upcoming meeting.
Also, mark your calendars for the 2020 Sporting Clays Event, which will be held on October 23 at Tampa Bay Sporting Clays. We look forward to another great year supporting a local charity, and having a little fun in the process.
As always, if you have any comments or suggestions for myself or our board, please don’t hesitate to reach out. We hope that you are enjoying the program year as much as we are.
Joanne Dempster
Chapter President
