The purpose of our committee is to provide educational and career development opportunities and an interactive forum for the exchange of ideas in the treasury and finance industry. Our SoCal Expo committee hosts an annual one-day event that provides the opportunity to attend educational sessions that will bring you valuable information on the many financial services provided by Banks, non-bank Financial Institutions and other third party providers of financial services to businesses and corporations.

Our committee develops a conference that focuses on education and emerging service products for an industry in constant change. Our Conference topics will benefit both corporate and government as well as financial professionals and will include:
  • Regulatory changes
  • Working capital management
  • Investments and borrowing

  • Treasury management
  • Bank relations
  • International Banking and Foreign Exchange
