Trusted Peer Groups--New Groups Forming Now

Sharing and learning with professionals like you

FEI Twin Cities is now expanding its Trusted Peer Groups program due to member demand and the success of its first peer group for private company CFOs.

This is an opportunity for FEI members to meet in small groups for facilitated discussion with finance professionals in similar positions. Topics include challenges, successes, shared interests, career paths, best practices, insights for the group and others. 

Diverse perspectives create value. Each peer group will consist of professionals from various industries grouped together by role – such as CFOs, controllers or other finance leaders – and further by private and public ownership or company size.

Format

  • 12 monthly meetings, lasting 3-4 hours

  • Facilitated, discussion between all members with opportunities for presentations

  • 12 members targeted per group to keep it conversational

  • Food and beverages

  • Located at the Prouty Project facility in Eden Prairie or at member hosted locations
