The Finance & Accounting Forum provides a forum for its members to discuss aspects of financial management including financial planning; implementation of new financial policies, control measures for monitoring financial performance, and tools to facilitate financial education.
The Finance and Accounting Forum has two co-chairs who chair and lead forum meetings. Agendas for meetings are developed by the co-chairs with input from the forum members during and between meetings. All forum members are volunteer representatives from ACEC/MA member firms. Additional participants from member firms are always welcome.
