New CFO Orientation

Designed to familiarize new new chief financial officers of electric cooperatives with their national associations and resources available to support them and their systems.

Co-sponsored by NRECA, CFC, NRTC and Federated, the New CFO Orientation is a two and a one-half day program designed for new chief financial officers of electric cooperatives with no more than two years of experience in their current position. Invitees can also include those who hold the titles of "directors of finance" or "controller" or other title of individuals that hold a position equivalent to that of a CFO for their cooperative.

Interactive sessions provide a detailed overview of programs and services that help new CFOs successfully address cooperative finance, regulatory, and accounting issues affecting their jobs and the electric cooperative network.

NOTE: This orientation is for the senior financial officer of your electric cooperative.

This event takes place at NRECA's headquarters in Arlington, VA and CFC's campus in Dulles, VA.
