With the New Year, The Institute of Financial Operations introduces a radically different magazine. It is being redesigned and refocused to address the business information needs of our members. The content will be focused on the professional needs of the core constituency. This means each article will contain useful actionable advice the reader can use in their day-to-day operations or to advance their career.

The new look reflects the vision of Joe Stern, the organization’s Brand and Creative Director. The crisp, fast-paced design encompasses the upwardly mobile professionalism of the members and the improved perception of the profession.

Each issue will contain a core of regular columns plus half-a-dozen pieces featuring a cast of revolving writers. All will be written by subject matter experts who are leading thought leaders in their field.

We’ve already recruited an impressive cast: Lynn Larson to write about p-cards, Chrys Olsen to continue sharing her unique perspective on management issues affecting AP professionals, Tracey Reid to keep us updated on Unclaimed Property issues, Ed Robinson to educate us on Leadership and Cyrus Daftary and the team at Markit/CTI to make sure our readers are kept updated on all the 1099 and other information reporting concerns.

The revolving columns will focus on e-invoicing, audit, accounts receivable, and other relevant accounts payable issues. This core of information provides a strong base for the feature articles which will educate and update financial operations readers. Feature pieces will be written by Mary Schaeffer, the publication’s editor-in-chief and other industry experts.

“I am thrilled with the caliber of professionals who have responded so positively to our invitations to write for the magazine, says Mary Schaeffer.” She also notes that in the next few months she expects to add a few additional experts to the columnist roster. Feature columns in 2015 include a look at Emerging Issues with a Focus on Technology for the second quarter, Regulatory Issues for the third quarter and Fraud Prevention and Detection for the fourth quarter.
