President's Message

February 27, 2015

Minnesota AFP's 33rd Annual Conference - Financial Innovations and Concepts is now open for registration. Please click here for more information.


In alignment with the Association for Financial Professionals (AFP) and our vision and mission, MNAFP wants to provide forums for all Finance professionals.

For this month’s session on February 12th, we had our first Financial Planning & Analysis (FP&A) session titled “The Impact of FP&A in Your Organization” presented by a panel of senior finance leaders including John Coskran from Capella University, Eric Beran from CSM Corp, Matt Weiner from CBRE, and Lisa Krocak from BlueCross Blue Shield. The session was moderated by Chris Fodor, CFO from CSM Corp.

These senior finance leaders shared their perspectives on a broad range of Finance related topics including budgeting/forecasting, acquisitions/disposition analysis, management decision support, hot topics, best practices and leadership. The session will be followed up with a Q&A from members.

FP&A professionals play an integral part of all organizations including analysis of qualitative and quantitative factors affecting the financial performance, analysis of data and facts to support stakeholders, budgeting and forecasting, etc.
