FPSA welcomed its members to Chicago, IL for the 2010 Financial Strategies Seminar developed by members of the Meat Industry Suppliers Alliance (MISA). Topics included planning and forecasting, foreign capital preservation, leasing and financing, and risk management. Speakers included Patrick McNally and Steven Baer from Blackman Kallick, Lynn Durning from Wells Fargo, and Bob Seeds from the International Financial Services Corporation.
“With economic challenges continuing within our industry and within our customers’ businesses as well, the council developed these seminars to provide insight into alternative and proactive ways of moving forward,” remarked MISA Chairman George Reed of the F. R. Drake Company.
"This year's Industry Council event was a tremendous success," added FPSA board member Gil Williams of Poly-clip System. "We had members traveling from many different states to participate in these sessions and they were able to take the information back to their businesses and put it to good use. This is another instance of FPSA providing excellent value to the membership"
