We hope you are enjoying these last weeks of summer!

Many thanks to everyone who turned out for the July 24th FPA of Metro New York Summer Party to exceptional weather on the 10th-floor terrace of Butter Midtown. What a great party! We celebrated the chapter membership with FPA 2019 President-Elect Martin Seay, Ph.D., CFP®, and it was wonderful to see so many of you there.

As you'll see from the event line-up below, we're gearing up for fall: join us for morning and evening networking and CE meetings, committee and study groups meetings, and a new series of Lunch & Learn sessions we're looking forward to kicking off in September. See you soon!
