In January 2022, the HFMA expanded its membership to include finance staff in NHS Agenda for Change bands 2 to 6 roles. Individuals in these positions qualify for free HFMA membership, and the association is pleased to have welcomed nearly four thousand members since the initiative's inception. To commemorate this milestone, we are excited to announce our inaugural conference tailored specifically for these members.

The conference aims to engage future finance leaders, individuals seeking to enhance their current skills, and those who have recently completed the HFMA intermediate certificate in healthcare business and finance. The day's themes will revolve around proactively managing career advancement within the NHS, optimising HFMA membership benefits, and celebrating the achievements of those who have earned the HFMA intermediate certificate.

Join us for a day of insightful learning, networking opportunities with peers, and a celebration of accomplishments. This event is worth 7 accredited CPD hours.

This event is free to attend.

    This session will consider the significance of artificial intelligence (AI) for the future of finance and accountancy. The future of finance will be even more technology and data enabled which means that value will increasingly be created in the interface between humans and technology. Against a backdrop of shifting organisational challenges and demands on individuals, AI presents both challenges and opportunities. For example, by helping to drive efficiencies, enhance analytical capabilities, or automate routine tasks, AI can propel us to new solutions as well as career opportunities. But to unlock new paths skill sets must evolve through continuous learning, and the distinct qualities, risks and applications of AI need to be understood.
