Letter from the President

Fellow Finance Professionals,

As COVID-19 has impacted our day to day life, AFP Calgary has also been seeking options to adapt to these environment changes. We have had to forego some of the in-person luncheons and replace them with web sessions. Thanks to our AFP Calgary chapter’s excellent coordination, we have continuously provided value to our community.

Even though our footprint is limited these days, our desire for growth develops further.  AFP Calgary is pleased to advise that  Treasury Education Portal is live! As we all know, treasury is a profession that covers a wide range of subjects, and each company has a different focus on a daily basis. It is not uncommon in our lives that we run into a new subject and we need to make a multi-million dollar decision in a few weeks. AFP Calgary is aimed to prepare our members with basic understanding of all those subjects and access to local experts to enhance our decision making.

The portal contains short videos and some reading materials to provide you with basic understanding of the subject. If further learning is required, we are happy to connect you to the specialist in our network for your specific questions.

However hard we try, we still cannot do this alone. We are calling for experts in our community to contribute to this meaningful cause. Together we are stronger and smarter!

Please contact us by emailing admin@afpcalgary.org if you have a topic or a video in mind and would be able to contribute. This will benefit our whole community. We will continue to refresh and enrich our content as time goes on.

To access the education page, please purchase a membership from the membership page or login to your membership account.

Stay safe,
Jue Zheng, CFA

President
Association for Financial Professionals – Calgary
