ARLINGTON, Va. — The National Grocers Association here said Wednesday it will inaugurate a new educational event geared to independent operators in the Western state — the Financial Management Conference, scheduled for Oct. 10-12 in Sacramento, Calif.
The conference will focus on ways retailers can improve the financial status of their companies for growth, NGA said. It will be held in cooperation with the California Grocers Association, the Arizona Food Marketing Alliance, the Utah Food Industry Association, the Northwest Grocery Association and the Washington Food Industry Association.
The conference will be jointly sponsored by NGA and FMS Solutions, Baltimore, Md., which provides independent retail grocers with financial, accounting and consulting services.
NGA said it will also host a Financial Management Conference, as usual, at its annual Las Vegas convention next year.
