“FPA was among the first organizations in the industry to recognize the important role the next generation of financial planners will play in the advancement of the profession,” said Lauren M. Schadle, CAE, FPA executive director and CEO. “Our NexGen community was started 10 years ago by a dedicated group of young professionals who wanted to gather to learn from each other and identify their role in the greater planning profession. It is heartening to see many of them listed on InvestmentNews’ list of ’40 Under 40’ and be recognized for the contributions they each have made to FPA and the entire profession.”

FPA NexGen Community is a community for the next generation of financial planners that strives to provide members with a network that serves to support, advise and encourage one another in their professional advancement; promote, foster and direct programs that aid in knowledge transference; and explore issues common to younger planners and seek means of accentuating the positives and finding resolutions for the negatives.​
