The  New York FP&A Board meeting

The New York FP&A Board will meet on the 19th of September 2019 for the sixth time. The professional debate will be devoted to the new age of Zero-Based Budgeting (ZBB). ZBB is a well-known concept but it has been given a new life lately as an enabler for driver-based modeling and flexible planning.

The International FP&A Board was created in London (UK) in 2013 to guide the development and promotion of best practices in Financial Planning & Analysis (FP&A). Since then, the Board chapters were successfully established in 25 cities and 16 countries across Europe, the Middle East, Asia, Australia, and North America. Their aim is to identify and support new global trends, valued skill sets and leadership practices in modern corporate Financial Planning & Analysis.

The FP&A Board is exclusive to senior finance practitioners in active employment (at CFO, FD and Head of Finance levels). Please note that places for the New York chapter are limited. We are inviting only 25 participants to join the event. 

The meeting is complimentaryvendor-agnostic and by-invitation-only.

If you would like to attend, please fill in the registration form below. We will review your application and get back to you. Please note that participation is subject to the FP&A Trends terms and conditions and privacy policy.
