III. THE 2011 STRATEGIC PLAN - WHAT NEEDS TO BE FIXED? (11:15 - 12:15)
As the world moves ever faster into a new age of technology, communications, economics, regulation, and personal connectivity, the emerging challenges for agencies continue to increase in innumerable ways. Whether general market, media, or digital, how will the agency of 2011 look different from that of 2010? Are there systemic changes ahead or minor adjustments? What would be on an agency CEO's 2011 "fix it list?" This high-level session will bring together senior agency management and the ANA Advertising Financial Management committee to discuss what those changes (or fixes) should be and how best to make them.

IV. HOW SHIFTS IN BUSINESS STRATEGY CAN IMPACT SOW DEVELOPMENT (1:00-2:00)
Within many bank holding companies, agency SOW development has morphed over time to accommodate centralization of marketing, shifting budgets, changing governance processes and new bank holding company requirements. This session will focus on the shift from multiple non-strategic relationships and fragmented brand images to large retainer based relationships with one holding company to multiple holding companies and boutique agency relationships based on project by project work and examine the effects and improvements within the SOW development process.

Electronic Media Credit Application Database
MFM, the Media Financial Management Association has proposed the development of an Electronic Media Credit Application database to help media providers collect the information they need to determine credit worthiness of an advertiser and have a pre-identified contact person that will lead to a process for resolving mistakes and disputes.

VI. PROCUREMENT TASKFORCE MEETING (optional) (2:30-3:30)
The ANA, in conjunction with the 4A's, fielded a survey in April of this year that took the pulse of procurement departments, internal clients, and agencies regarding the state of marketing procurement. The findings revealed a wide and disturbing gap between the value that procurement believes it is delivering and the opinions of the marketing and agency groups. The ANA Procurement Task Force will meet to discuss issues presented in the survey and identify best practices and practical case studies that demonstrate the positive role of procurement.
