Calabasas, Calif. - November 12, 2009 - Executives from financial software provider BlackLine Systems will be speaking at Financial Executives International’s (FEI) 28th Annual Current Financial Reporting Issues (CFRI) Conference, scheduled for Monday and Tuesday, Nov. 16 and 17, 2009, at the New York Marriott Marquis Times Square. BlackLine also plans to hold an East Coast Client Get-Together in New York to serve its large and growing base of customers in the region.
With an emphasis on the new administration, today’s economic challenges and regulation reform, CFRI will detail the latest accounting and reporting developments from the FASB, SEC and IASB.
BlackLine CEO Therese Tucker and VP, Product Specialist Jeff Adler, CPA, MBA, will lead a breakfast session entitled “Closing with Confidence” slated for Monday, Nov. 16, at 7 a.m. ET. With stakes surrounding the financial close higher today than ever, the session will focus on ways the CFO can improve the financial close process by increasing visibility and control, while employing the underappreciated control of account reconciliations in a strategic fashion.
The BlackLine East Coast Client Get-Together will be an all-day event on Tuesday, Nov. 17, at BlackLine partner Ernst & Young’s offices in mid-town Manhattan. Representatives from client companies including the Associated Press and Four Seasons are expected to attend.
BlackLine client Teresa Platt, director of corporate accounting and compliance for the Associated Press, will be speaking at both events – presenting case studies on the benefits she’s experienced using BlackLine software.
