The Regional Tune Up series will resume for the 2018-19 fiscal year. Due to the overwhelmingly positive feedback we received from previous events, we are coming back to Montreal for another FI-exclusive professional development event. It will feature informative and inspiring speakers, updates on ACFO initiatives and enjoyable meals with your colleagues.

Sessions and speakers

The event will take place on Wednesday, November 7, at the Intercontinental Hotel (360 Saint-Antoine St W) and feature an engaging half-day workshop on power and influence in the workplace by Pierre Lainey, an award-winning executive trainer. Pierre will help FIs understand the role of power in the workplace and offer tips on how to be an influential member of your team regardless of your role or level.

The day will also include a presentation from the Office of the Comptroller General (OCG) on developing the FI competencies and a town-hall-style lunch from ACFO.

Members are encouraged to stay for dinner and the ACFO Annual General Meeting, which will be held in Montreal for the very first time that evening.

To ensure maximum participation and that all ACFO members of the FI Community across the Quebec Region get a chance to attend, accommodations for one night will be reimbursed for ACFO members travelling from outside of the Montreal area (more than 100 km driving distance from your home or work location)

Costs related to travel, food, etc. will not be reimbursed, so we encourage you to ask your employer to cover these costs. Only a limited number of rooms are available and will be assigned on a first come, first served basis, so don’t delay in registering!


Attendance is free and open to all ACFO members. To register, please contact us at indicating you would like to register for the Montreal Tune Up. Please also mention your full name, department, whether you require a hotel room and if you have any dietary restrictions, as a continental breakfast and three-course lunch will be served.

In addition, ACFO events are classified as training for FIs, so please contact us should you have any questions or concerns about getting approval from your employer to attend.

This year’s Regional Tune Up events are funded through the Joint Career Development Program (JCDP) managed by ACFO and the OCG.
