Mission statement: To be the first choice of financial professionals for media industry education, networking, and information sharing.

What is MFM? 
The Media Financial Management Association (MFM) is a not-for-profit professional association dedicated to the unique interests and needs of business and finance executives in the media industry. Founded in 1961, MFM (formerly BCFM) membership is open to all industry business professionals. In addition, MFM welcomes associate members from allied fields including accounting; auditing; brokerage; law; tax; and other related disciplines. The Association’s approximately 1,200 active members represent the top financial, general management, IT, internal audit, human resources, and other media management personnel from major television networks, network affiliates, radio stations, cable programming networks, cable MVPDs, games, out-of-home, digital and newspaper/print outlets throughout the U.S. and Canada.  

Benefits of Membership

For more than 50 years, MFM has provided professional development and networking opportunities for its members through conferences, regional seminars, publications, and technology-based events. MFM holds one annual conference per year, media outlook seminar and several localism events throughout the year. Attending the conference and/or localism events as well as joining one (or two) of MFM's fourteen committees is the best way to network and build relationships. These opportunities blend critical leadership education, information sharing, networking, and emerging issues relevant to media financial professionals.
