The FMI-Capital Chapter has lined up an exciting 2015-2016 PD Day Program Year.

FMI-CC's annual social and networking event to launch the FMI-CC Program Year held on September 24th, had an excellent turnout of Chapter members including many CFOs, DCFO's and CAE's. A big thank you goes out to all who participated in this year's kickoff and to the dedicated volunteers, in particular the Departmental Liaisons for their support in helping to spread the word about FMI-CC's PD Days to their communities. It couldn't have been done without your support!

It was also a pleasure to see representatives from the Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA), Ottawa Chapter attend the annual social. FMI-CC is especially pleased to be partnering with the IIA to offer a joint IIA/FMI-CC professional development Breakfast event on "Transitioning In and Out of an Audit or Financial Management Career" on February 3rd, 2016 at the Sheraton Hotel, 150 Albert Street, Ottawa. Online registration is available on the FMI-CC website.

The next Fall social and networking event is the FMI-CC Aspiring Leaders Network kick-off event to be held on October 22, 2015. Cost is $5 and you can register on-line here. Come for an evening of fun, entertainment and networking. Highlights include: food and drink, prizes, networking games and amazing speeches.

FMI-CC's annual "Departmental Liaison Thank You Breakfast" is scheduled for October 29, 2015. This event is free. It is a great way to meet other Departmental Liaison Representatives.
