For 90 years, FEI has been connecting senior-level financial executives by serving the needs and interests of its members. The founding purpose of FEI was to define the profession, exchange ideas about best practices, educate members and others, and work with the government to improve the general economy. There are approximately 8,000 members and 65 chapters in the United States.
While much has changed in the external environment over the years, FEI hasn’t strayed far from its original purpose, shifting only to reflect the particular challenges of each era of our history. And certainly the 21st Century couldn’t be more demanding and challenging for financial executives and their peers around the globe. It is, in fact, during such times of economic and global uncertainty that FEI benefits are most valuable and visible -- from obtaining critical knowledge on emerging regulations, to networking with peers, to tapping FEI’s knowledge base for career assistance.
