The Portland Chapter of the FENG has operated since 2003, when it was organized by Joe Connors. Joe had been a member of the Boston chapter of The FENG and recognized the potential benefits of the organization for senior financial professionals seeking career and networking opportunities in the greater Portland and Southwest Washington area. The Portland Chapter operates informally and is not highly dependent on the national organization. _ 


Today, the Portland Chapter has over 400 members and maintains an active event calendar that includes regular monthly meetings and an active support structure for members in job transition. The Chapter is guided by an active leadership group and financially supported by a growing list of much appreciated Corporate Sponsors.



The Portland Chapter


The Portland Chapter is proud to serve as the premiere networking group in the Portland area for senior financial executives. We have an active local chapter and welcome questions from qualified financial executives interested in becoming a member, organizations who would like to sponsor our chapter, or questions in general from the press or public.
