All of the groups in which FEI members get together, including Local Chapters, National Accounting Policy & Government Advocacy Committees, Roundtables, Action Teams, and Communities of Interest, are Communities.
Within that umbrella, Communities of Interest generally meet virtually (i.e., via webcast or conference call) and thus are not bound by time (zone) or space (i.e. you can tune in at work, at home, from 'virtually' anywhere).
Our Communities of Interest are based on member interest, and join together around a common area of interest or peer network. Communities of Interest include: CFOs (see summary of a very successful program jointly sponsored last year by Ernst & Young and FEI's CFO Community of Interest on The Evolving Role of Today's CFO); Technology; and Theory Meets Practice
NEW in 2013: Audit Committee Members
FEI has always welcomed Audit Committee Members within its Executive category of membership, although this may be a little-known fact. We plan to offer more programs of interest to the Audit Committee Member segment of our membership, which is an important component of high quality and ethical financial reporting. Additionally, FEI recognizes that CFOs and other senior level financial executives sometimes serve not only on their own company's Audit Committee, but also on other company's Audit Committees. Our Audit Committee Member Community of Interest can be an important source of information and networking for those CFO members when they wear their audit committee member hat as well.
