FEI Retail Restaurant SIG
FEI Special Interest Groups are designed to provide financial executives an industry focused group to exchange ideas with their industry peers in a smaller setting. The Special Interest Groups are formal presentations held 3-4 times per year to discuss relevant issues and strategies within a particular industry. These are panel discussions led by a moderator to facilitate an interactive dialogue between the audience and the selected industry panel. These groups may also include networking socials. The groups are managed by a CFO advisory board, a sponsorship group and members of the FEI SIG committee. The CFO Advisory Board/Steering Committee (4-5 members) is a group of FEI seated CFOs within a specific industry who determine content, facilitate discussion, and direct the sponsors on programs, panels, etc. There will be one sponsor per category within a SIG i.e., accounting firm, bank, insurance broker, etc. Sponsorship will be limited to one SIG, unless there is no competition within a category for an additional SIG. Sponsorship will first be offered to current FEI Dallas sponsors followed by potential new sponsors, then to existing SIG sponsors. The goal is to have 5-7 sponsors per SIG. Sponsors are responsible for the administration and financial support of the group. Responsibilities include coordinating the speakers, venue, and food/beverage, promoting the group, promoting attendance, and developing handouts and presentation pieces.
