The Association for Financial Professionals of Canada (AFPC) welcomes the Vancouver chapter of Treasury Management Association of Canada (TMAC). The Vancouver chapter recently voted to become a regional partner under the name AFP of Canada-Vancouver. Robert G. Stanley, CMA, Chairman, AFP of Canada, plans to announce this new partnership at the AFP of Canada Chairman’s Reception, to be held during the AFP Annual Conference next week in San Antonio.
"I welcome our newest regional partner, AFP of Vancouver, creating a network of partners from coast to coast," said Stanley. "We look forward to working with all of our regional partners to provide solutions and products serving the needs of all treasury and finance professionals in Canada."
Vancouver joins the Maritimes, Ottawa, Toronto, Edmonton and Calgary chapters, which voted to become AFP of Canada regional partners earlier this year.
"The board of directors and our members are very pleased to be partnered with AFP of Canada," said Zelda Clifford, CTP, President, AFP of Canada-Vancouver. "Our partnership with AFP of Canada will generate significant value to treasury and finance professionals by linking them to a highly recognized worldwide brand, providing resources that will benefit the members. Our members have so much to gain by this partnership."
In addition to their association with AFP’s global brand, regional partners participate in the annual AFP Regional Officers Meeting in Washington, DC. AFP of Canada-Vancouver joins 62 regional associations throughout North America and the Caribbean currently partnering with AFP.
