With Sage’s support, CFMA has been able to develop new courses and ensure that its members and other professionals in the industry continue to receive relevant high-quality education. Thousands of CFMs attend these courses annually, and with an average course score of 9.2 out of 10, the value of this partnership is unmistakable,” said CFMA President & CEO Stuart Binstock.
