The Association for Financial Professionals (AFP) and LeanUp, LLC (LeanUp) have reached an agreement that will allow both organizations to more fully serve the needs of the corporate treasury profession. Through this alliance, new and renewing members of LeanUp communities will become members of AFP, and AFP members will be offered a substantial first-year discount to join LeanUp communities.
“We are excited to collaborate with LeanUp to deliver on our shared mission to support the success of the profession,” said Jim Kaitz, president and CEO of AFP. “Interacting with a group of your peers in a private, confidential setting is a valuable approach to solving the most difficult challenges. Coupled with AFP’s unbiased, practitioner-focused offerings, this alliance creates a complete solution for the profession.”
LeanUp develops and runs private small-group communities for treasurers and their staff. Through this collaboration, AFP will provide access to professional development content, research, training, certification and events. LeanUp will provide access to its invitation-only Treasury Executive, Assistant Treasurer and Treasury Leaders communities, which come together to share common challenges and discuss innovative ideas with confidentiality.
Both AFP and LeanUp are committed to helping treasury professionals succeed and achieve their maximum career potential. The combined offerings available through this agreement provide access to certification, training, events, technical guides, research and year-round networking to address a wide variety of needs, as well as learning and networking styles of individual treasury professionals.
“We feel honored and privileged to partner with the most prestigious and well-known finance professional association in the country,” said Bryan Richardson, a LeanUp Founding Partner. “But more importantly, we are very excited to bring the depth of AFP resources to our members and the power of small group communities to AFP members. This combination provides everything a treasury practitioner needs to be very successful in their career.”
