Is it really 2022 already?
With 2021 appearing in our rearview mirrors, a definite “new normal in treasury” has emerged with a force over the past year that we all can feel. Corporate practitioners and vendors have been working hard and stead-fast in dealing with resource issues, finding new efficiencies, more bank mergers, new tech players, and new opportunities appearing for some and unexpected hurdles appearing for others.
And we all can attest to the challenges of remote work, the absence of the ‘old’ regular collaborations, and the speed at which we now have to move. So combine all that with repeated global uncertainty created from this morphing pandemic and voila, an important reason to again rely on each other in the treasury profession to share ideas, innovations, and knowledge to assure our collective business continuity and get through this.
Colleagues and members at New England AFP are coming together in early May to help us all navigate with confidence into the future, regardless of the height of the hurdles or complexity of the challenges.
The 2022 NEAFP Conference will be a hybrid event with a kick off, in-person, (safe*) networking event at Boston’s beloved Fenway Park followed by 2 days packed with 30 virtual sessions, and inspiring key note virtual luncheons provided by our truly dedicated sponsors. You will enjoy a lineup of experts sharing their innovations, expertise, expanded fraud controls, technical acumen, leadership, and practical operational solutions that will sharpen your views of what is now a new reality in the world of treasury and financial services.
We hope you will spring to action and join in by registering today for New England’s premier treasury and finance 2022 conference!

Founder and CEO, Year Up
Investing in Skills-Based Hiring to Access New Sources of Talent in Treasury Management
At a time when our organizations are struggling to find the talent that they need, how can we attract, retain and develop the best talent, while reducing barriers that may prevent talent from finding their way to us? By redefining who we believe is talented and where that talent might reside, organizations have an opportunity to succeed in an increasingly diverse society. Year Up believes there is a tremendous amount we can do to change our behaviors if we accept the belief that talent is distributed evenly – beginning with the removal of the 4-year degree requirement as a condition of application for a job. Gerald Chertavian is the Founder and CEO of Year Up, one of the nation’s largest youth workforce development programs. Chertavian was a successful technology entrepreneur and Wall Street banker, but it was through his many years as a Big Brother that he found his true calling. The young adults met had immense talent, yet all too often they were stranded outside the economic mainstream. Chertavian saw that when given a fair chance, with challenging standards and high support, these young people could accomplish anything.
