TMAC would like to share that we have taken steps to build out partnerships with AFP Chapters across Canada, providing you access to a collective Canada-wide series of virtual educational seminars. For TMAC members, this will now expand the number of sessions you can attend at no cost throughout 2021, with a nominal $25.00 attendance fee assessed on each seminar for non-members. These partnerships complement our own TMAC sessions and reinforce our key mandates to connect, educate and support our practitioner constituents and will serve to offer additional value to your professional development.
Please join us on June 9th, 2021 for a highly-topical webinar hosted by AFP-Ottawa and in collaboration with our fellow AFP chapters across Canada. This panel discussion event will feature: Stevan Dostanic, Assistant Treasurer, Shopify; Christine Fischer, VP, Finance Operations & Corporate Services, Export Development Canada; and, Maureen Jarvis, Managing Director, Head of Global Transaction Services, Bank of America.
This panel discussion will focus on how three large organizations adjusted their operations, from a treasury management perspective, to thrive during the COVID-19 pandemic.
