The 2011 Financial Management Seminar will examine today’s poultry industry financial challenges, evaluate bank lending trends, and update accounting practices. Sponsored by U.S. Poultry & Egg Association’s Poultry & Egg Institute, the conference for financial management professionals is scheduled June 27-29, at the Ritz Carlton in Amelia Islands, FL.
Fuel and corn costs, tax changes, and bank lending trends all have a huge impact on poultry and egg companies' financial management. Combine these challenges with changing consumer trends and global economic factors, and you get a very complex role for financial managers. Comments Committee Chairman Michael Popowycz, Case Foods, “Financial management becomes increasingly complicated in the economic environment we are facing. Financial managers cannot face today’s challenges with yesterday’s knowledge. It is important to stay current on techniques and best practices to keep up with ever-changing financial management responsibility.”
Other topics on the program include A CEO’s Perspective of Financial Management, Ethanol/GIPSA/EPA…Impact on Poultry Industry, Global Markets Outlook, Hedging/Markets Interaction, an Economic Forecast, and a series of roundtable workshops.
U.S. Poultry & Egg Association is registered with the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy as a sponsor of continuing professional education on the National Registry of CPE Sponsors.
