FPA D.C. Advocacy Day

​The 7th Annual FPA D.C. Advocacy Day will be held June 2 and 3 in Washington, D.C. In 2019, 85 FPA members participated in the event, visiting more than 90 congressional offices. Members were able to participate in a pro bono event with D.C. Hill staffers or attend the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commissions' open meeting, where SEC Commissioners voted o​n the Regulation Best Interest Rule Package. After the SEC voted, SEC Commissioner Hester Pierce spoke to FPA members at the FPA Education Symposium.
