How do I get involved if...

All CFOs in South Africa are actively invited to our regular events like CFO Day and the CFO Awards.

Send an email to executive community director Georgina Guedes to be added to the invitation list, and you will also start receiving your personal copy of CFO Magazine. There is no cost involved!

As a CFO, you will also receive invitations to exclusive dinners and we may approach you to share your insights with the wider finance community through webinars, podcasts or an interview on CFO.co.za.
