Even in a thriving economy, it is critical for financial managers to stay abreast of shifts in economic drivers, such as tax legislation, export outlooks and other financial matters that affect poultry businesses from day to day. Industry best practices are constantly improving and changing, and it is up to financial managers to ensure that their company’s fiscal goals align with the current state of the industry. Each year, USPOULTRY’s Financial Management Seminar offers a diverse selection of presentations and breakout sessions to help financial managers keep up with the latest trends and best practices in today’s modern poultry industry. This year’s seminar will be held June 24-26, at the Hilton Sandestin Beach Golf Resort & Spa in Destin, Florida.
“The planning committee has put together a robust agenda that covers a variety of areas, including a Washington update, tax update, economic overview, export update, financial impact of computer fraud and much more. Attendees will leave this year’s seminar with information on current trends and financial understanding of what the future may hold for the poultry industry,” said Greg Finch, CFO, Claxton Poultry Farms, and program committee chairman.
The seminar agenda, developed by poultry and egg industry financial professionals, will also include topics such as Business Ethics in Financial Management; Measuring the Environmental and Financial Impact of Sustainability Efforts; The Ops Teams Use of Financial Reports for Strategic Business Decisions; Energy/Utility Markets; and more. There will also be afternoon breakout sessions covering topics that include Turkey and Egg Industry Accounting Challenges, Wayfair Impact on Sales and Income Tax; Payroll / Time and Attendance Systems; and more.
