AP Appreciation Week takes place October 10th-14th; IOFM will celebrate with prizes and giveaways AP Appreciation Week
The AP and P2P functions are a critical component of every business, yet the hard work involved often goes under-recognized.

The AP & P2P Network has announced plans to celebrate AP Appreciation Week, October 10th-14th, with giveaways for accounting professionals throughout the week. This annual event was created to recognize and celebrate professionals working in the fields of Accounts Payable and Procure-to-Pay, whose critical work often goes unnoticed in the corporate environment.

“The AP and P2P functions are a critical component of every business, yet the hard work involved often goes under-recognized,” said Brian Cuthbert, Executive Director of IOFM. “If your organization’s payables process is running smoothly, that means the people behind that process are a cut above average – and they deserve to be recognized for fulfilling such a tall order,” he added.

During AP Appreciation Week, IOFM and the AP & P2P Network will treat one hardworking AP & P2P team each day by awarding their team a $200 gift card to go out for lunch. Submissions will be accepted until October 13, 2016 (noon EST). Those who wish to recognize their own team or any Accounts Payable or Procure-to-Pay team who they believe goes above and beyond can submit entries on the AP & P2P Network website:

The AP & P2P Network will also hold daily drawings during AP Appreciation Week for other prizes via its Facebook page ( and Twitter account ( Experts from the AP & P2P Network and IOFM will review submissions and select award winners. Winners will be notified and announced during AP Appreciation Week (October 10th – 14th). For more information, go to or contact IOFM at 207-842-5557 or
