Historic 2018... Quite simply, Thank You

Our 51st year is in the books.  And it was our biggest and best ever.  The numbers prove it:

For the 2nd year in a row, our paid membership has grown by more than 10% for a new record.  (Annual dues are still only $100.  Join or renew today!)

We held a record 53 events in 2018, including content-focused lunches, breakfasts and after-work receptions; awards dinners; sporting events (golf, tennis, NY Rangers!), social events (Mardi Gras, Libations Tasting), and service events staged by our Young Members Circle.

The events were held in 9 locations, including, for the first time, San Mateo, California, and Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

In fact, FCS Central now includes FCS Milwaukee, along with FCS Chicago.

More than 1,600 industry professionals attended or participated in these 53 events.  Another record.

Counting only the content-focused events, exactly 100 client-side marketing leaders served as panelists, keynotes, or presenters, representing 74 financial brands. Both numbers are new records for the FCS.
