Portland, ME (PRWEB) February 17, 2015
The Institute of Finance & Management (IOFM) is pleased to announce a variety of brand new content for its spring AP Conference, Accounts Payable & Procure-to-Pay Conference & Expo (AP&P2P), taking place May 18-20, 2015 at Disney’s Yacht & Beach Club Resorts ® Walt Disney World ® Resort, FL.
“AP is an ever-evolving subject, allowing some of our speakers to return and simply provide an update on what has changed from year to year (take the transient Form 1099 regulations, for example). However, it is essential for any professional gathering to provide inspiration, innovation, and fresh ideas. That’s why the AP & P2P Conference & Expo focuses both on what’s new within the industry as well as some considerations our attendees may have never thought of,” said RD Whitney, Vice President of the IOFM.
New for the first time on the AP & P2P Conference & Expo’s agenda are topics such as:
- How Aflac Made Existing Software Work When Budgets Were Tight
- Managing a Vendor Base
- The Ultimate Transition – Evolving the AP Department
- Metrics, Benchmarks, Then Automation
- Building a Continuous Improvement Culture in Your Organization
- Mining “Big Data” in Accounts Payable and Supply Chain
- How to Effectively Manage Unclaimed Property Compliance
- Developing an AP Infrastructure
- Documenting Policies & Procedures
- Improve the Customer Experience of Employee Reimbursements
- Successful Implementation of a Commercial Card Program
- Panel discussion: Managing the AP Staff
Industry experts vetted by IOFM and The Accounts Payable Network (TAPN) will present the new topics. Among these professionals include representatives from Aflac, Discovery Communications, The Fresh Market, Johnson and Johnson, McDonald’s, Mayo Clinic, Unclaimed Property Recovery and Reporting LLC, Cerberus Capital Management, HearUSA, FEDEX, and HD Supply.
The AP & P2P Conference & Expo’s nationwide audience will participate in three days of training sessions organized into four pick-and-choose tracks, peer networking roundtables, Meet ‘n’ Mingle meals, certification and testing options, receptions, and more.
