In honor of Veteran's Day, I'd like to note that Financial Executives International offers a reduced membership rate to qualifying members of the government and military. As noted on our membership qualifications page, the following category is offered in addition to the categories of Executive membership, Associate membership, and Academic membership:
$195 (standard annual dues rate; no application fee)
This category is open to all senior financial executives who serve in a finance, accounting, budget, or treasury position for a local, state, or federal government agency, department, bureau or office. Applicants for this category should have direct responsibility over budgetary expenditures of at least $25 million.
On a personal level (I remind you of the disclaimer on the right side of this blog) I would also like to offer thanks to those who have served our country through government and military service, as well as those who serve with police, fire, emergency rescue and other departments and agencies who put themselves in harm's way for the sake of others.
Also in honor of this day, we repeat in this post the link to the Gratitude video (produced by The Gratitude Campaign - see also The Gratitude Campaign Blog) from our Memorial Day post in 2008. Once again thanks to Michelle Golden, author of the Golden Practices Blog, (a fellow member of AccountingWEB Bloggers' Crew, and one of the cameo avatars in a certain music video we posted earlier this year) for making us aware of the Gratitude Campaign & video via Twitter.
