What is the purpose of the committee?

The committee first met in December 2022 at the Four Seasons Hotel Austin to discuss the topic “Every Payment is a Conversation,” which was guided by Expensify’s founder and CEO David Barrett, COO Anu Muralidharan, and CPO Jason Mills. Future initiatives, including chat, payroll, and the Expensify wallet, will be discussed in meetings throughout 2023.

The next gathering takes place this May at ExpensiCon, a prestigious invite-only accounting conference in Italy where 100 industry professionals and thought leaders will come together for five days of community building, thought leadership, networking, and roundtable sessions.
