2019_SW_Regional_Banner.jpgRegistration Deadline Extended through September 10, 2019

The San Diego, Orange County, Valley of the Sun, Las Vegas, Inland Empire, and Albuquerque CFMA chapters have joined together to provide our 5th Annual CFMA Southwest Regional Conference.  Together, we are committed to delivering the best networking, education, and training experience of any kind in the field of construction accounting and finance.

We understand the challenges Construction Financial Managers face and we realize you do not have the time or resources to stay abreast of all aspects of what that job entails. That is why we created this annual event.

This year's conference will include two information-packed days, 14 CPE credits, including expert keynote speakers who provide great insight about topics such as fraud, accounting, technology, human resources, taxes, and overall industry changes and updates.

You have no-doubt been very aware of how changing market demands are forcing change on how you do business.

What you do not know can hurt you. Can you really afford NOT to attend?
