No membership organization has the backs of CFP® professionals like FPA.
A cornerstone of any profession is the willingness of those in the profession to have their voices heard. Engaging in activities that make FPA more visible, as well as CFP®
professionals more visible at all levels, will ensure our members and profession are held in a high regard by state and federal policymakers and the public. FPA is uniquely positioned to advocate on behalf of our members and develop the means for our members and chapters to have their voices heard on issues of importance to them, their businesses, and their clients.
