FMA International is pleased to announce its 2021 Annual Meeting will be held on 20 – 23 October at the Sheraton Downtown Denver Hotel in Denver, CO. Led by Dr.Michelle Lowry, TD Bank Professor of Finance at Drexel University,the conference will bring together academicians and practitioners with interests in financial decision-making. The conference provides a forum for presenting new research and discussing current issues in financial management and related topics.At this point, we are planning to hold an in-person conference with some virtual components. Recent surveys highlight the many benefits of face-to-face interactions, and we hope that most people will be able to attend in-person. However, we will continue monitoring and re-evaluate as the event draws closer. Presentations of research papers, panel discussions, Overview & Research Idea sessions and roundtables will begin Thursday morning and end Saturday at noon. The Doctoral Student Consortium (by application), Diversity Emerging Scholars Initiative (by application) and Financial Planning & Analysis Roundtable will be held on Wednesday, 20 October
