Join the best and brightest minds of the next generation of financial planners at the annual FPA NexGen Gathering Friday, June 23 - 25, 2017, at North Central College in Naperville, IL. This event provides an opportunity to discuss hot topics and trends facing the future of the financial planning profession and a chance to get to know your peers, colleagues and the FPA leadership in an intimate and free-flow setting.


We welcome all members of the financial planning community to join the conversation and experience the pulse, passion and vision of the next generation of financial planners. 

We are thrilled to have Elizabeth Jetton and Hannah Moore serve as facilitators this year! And, congratulations to the winners of the 2017 FPA NexGen Gathering Scholarship: Jessie Carrillo, Sabina Smailhodzic and Vincent Viveros!
