Who is a considered a participating bank/vendor?
A participating vendor organization is one that markets product/services to treasury professionals or banks AND is a New England AFP Conference Sponsor or Exhibitor. If your organization provides products or services to treasury professionals or banks, and your organization is not listed under Sponsors and Exhibitors, then you are considered a non-participating vendor.
Can I attend any session listed?
The Conference Tracks are designed under specific interest groups and levels allowing you to customize your own agenda. You may attend any session you wish either in a specific track or any combination thereof.   
What level are the sessions?
The level of presentation is identified by the speaker and is based on expected audience experience and knowledge. Unless noted Advanced (ADV), the sessions fall in the Intermediate level. This level requires a basic knowledge and some experience in the topic area. With a brief emphasis on terms, the focus is on “How does it work?” and the user benefits, and includes detailed examples. Advanced sessions require a working knowledge and considerable experience in the topic area by attendees and may further require basic or working knowledge in one or more related areas outside the specific topic area. The focus is on “Can I apply this to my organization?”, “How do I implement it?”, “How do I evaluate it?”. Examples and calculations may be fairly complex and only new technical terminology will be specifically defined. Also included in sessions of this level are in-depth evaluations of alternatives.
