AS THE PLANNING FOR THE 2017 WINDY CITY SUMMIT IS GETTING INTO FULL SWING, WE SAT DOWN WITH THE CO-CHAIRS TO TALK ABOUT WHAT THEY ARE MOST EXCITED ABOUT WITH THE WINDY CITY SUMMIT AND IN THE INDUSTRY.
Celebrating 31 Years
We are looking forward to sharing our thoughts and industry insights with you as we prepare for the best treasury and finance event of the year. We are thrilled to be the ones creating your experience and can’t wait to bring our industry together. Bankers, corporate practitioners and other service providers will come together for two-and-a-half days in May 2017.
There is so much to look forward to this year, the continuing education, the networking, and the bank events! It is a time to celebrate our successes, our peers, and our industry. This is THE event that grows our careers and builds our businesses. Let’s come together to grow and celebrate!
Industry Insights Are Key
Our goal is to design an event that allows you to create depth as a professional. The conference will feature breakout sessions from an amazing group of industry leaders, keynote addresses from distinguished speakers, and an exhibit hall full of businesses ready to serve you, no matter the stage of your career. The program is designed to create stepping stones on which you can build upon to advance your knowledge base and networking circle.
It is so important for treasury professionals to stay current. Our industry has transitioned from one of transactional efficiency to one of maintaining transactional efficiency while managing worldwide regulatory compliance. Think IRS 385, Brexit, Money Market Reform, Basil III, etc., these are all examples of the ever-changing climate of our industry. This is what drives us when developing the content to provide your continuing education.
Staying Ahead of the Pack
The Treasury professional’s new reality is a constantly changing compliance and regulatory environment. Those in the industry have been required to make extra efforts to keep up with the changes through research, continued education and networking with peers.
Expertise in the Treasury profession is more valuable today than ever before due to:
• Increased regulations for both corporations and bankers
• Downsized staffing and teams with greater responsibilitie
• A Treasury scope which has tremendously expanded geographically, in functionality and in its demands for efficiency.
We are challenged more than ever. Keeping up with these worldwide challenges demands education and a strong treasury network.
We really hope that you feel our passion and it helps to fuel yours. Whatever your goals are – whether it’s greater industry knowledge, learning something new, or personal development – we know you will find it at this year’s Windy City Summit. We have so much to offer!
In the coming months, we’ll strive to bring you relevant and useful content via this blog from our speakers, sponsors, exhibitors and TMAC Board Members that will highlight the valuable and industry leading information as it relates to the conference topics.
We are looking forward to seeing you at Windy City Summit in May!
