"The association means more to us than just participating in networking activities and sharing knowledge. It's a forum where members are linked by a sense of community shaped by the challenges faced by the profession," said Louis Marcotte, Chairman of the Quebec Chapter of FEI Canada. "This reality drives us as a Board, as members and as managers of the activities of our membership."

Exchanging ideas and knowledge

The Quebec Chapter of FEI Canada is a meeting place where financial executives can discuss and share their experiences. A true catalyst for strengthening its members' leadership in their field, the association encourages members to reflect upon the profession and the environment in which it is evolving through professional development and knowledge sharing. In addition to the numerous networking events and conferences, these activities include the 2015 Financial Executive Forum, to be held on November 25, 2015 in Montreal. The Quebec Chapter also organizes the prestigious "Aces of Finance" competition, which recognizes the contribution of outstanding Quebec financial executives, now in its sixth year. The call for candidacies of the 2016 edition will begin this November.
