Spring 2022

Saltwater Grille, South Portland, ME

The Council hosted its first in-person event since the Fall of 2019.  We welcomed Frank Farone from the Darling Consulting Group who provided some very timely commentary on Navigating Through a Fed Tightening Cycle: Strategies to Consider and Avoid.  In addition to his presentation, we also had a roundtable discussion covering a number of Asset Liability Management related topics.  The presentation and dialogue were excellent!  Attendees had plenty of time to catch-up during a Happy Hour at the end of the event hosted by the Council.
