P. Kemp Fain, Jr., Award

Named for P. Kemp Fain, Jr., this award recognizes an individual who has made outstanding contributions to the financial planning profession. P. Kemp Fain, Jr., formed the first International Association for Financial Planning (IAFP) chapter in 1971 and served as its first president. Additionally, Fain served as president and chair of the Institute of Certified Financial Planners (ICFP) from 1983 until 1985. He was the first person to officially enroll in the CFP® certification program and was a member of the inaugural class of CFP® conferees in 1973. 

In keeping with Fain's example, nominees for the award are professionals who have made significant contributions to the financial planning profession in the areas of service to society, academia, government and professional activities. They must also exemplify the FPA's Core Values​ of integrity, competence, relationships, and stewardship. The recipient is recognized at FPA's Annual Conference.
