What comes with being an IOFM Chapter Member?

Building a stronger community.

IOFM Chapters were developed to help build a stronger community within the Financial Operations world. When we build stronger communities, we build bigger ideas, stronger relationships, and better processes.

Better processes.

In our Chapter meetings we work directly with leadership to ensure you’re learning something when you attend the quarterly meetings. Whether that’s a new idea on automation, compliance laws, collection regulations, when we meet in person we begin to understand everyone’s processes – which allows us the understanding of how something works, more importantly how you can make something work better.

Continuing your education.

Because we’re working closely with Chapter leaders to ensure you’re learning chapter meetings qualify for up-to 4 CEUs for IOFM’s certification programs.
