The AT30 will discuss developing treasury staff and the path to the treasurer’s office at their meeting.
The Assistant Treasurers’ Group of Thirty (AT30), now in its third year, will meet on May 6-7 in Princeton, NJ, at the offices of Bristol-Myers Squibb. Sponsoring the event will be HSBC, a long-time NeuGroup partner.
The group has developed an agenda that focuses on advancing treasury’s skill set, career path and perceptions by other departments. Developing the treasury staff is a goal for any responsible leader. That task can be a challenge when the team members are a mix of devoted treasury practitioners and the generalists dropping in for a year or so to check off the treasury box on their way up a broader career path. AT30 members will discuss and share their approaches to staff development.
But for dedicated treasury professionals, the eye is on the ultimate prize of the treasurer title. A meeting session will address the “path to the treasurer’s office,” as described by featured guest speakers, the treasurers at General Motors and Honeywell. These speakers will tell the story of their own careers, what they would expect in a successor, and advise members on how they should prepare for that opportunity when it comes, in addition to fielding questions from members.
Aside from the staff and the AT, many also see value in training other groups about the role and value of the treasury department and have developed programs specifically for that task. A meeting session will feature one or two members who will share their program and the benefits they derive from it.
Currently, the AT30 has reached its membership capacity, therefore The NeuGroup is looking to start a second group for assistant treasurers.
