Message From Your Chapter President
Happy New Year!
It is an honor to serve as your incoming president. I am excited to continue to be a part of the board and to help make your membership experience a valuable one. The board had taken this very seriously since I have been involved as a leader.
Some of our proud accomplishments that I'd like to share with you are as follows:
- A new website - We are putting the finishing touches on it and it should be live in a month or so
- Social Media - Linked In, Facebook and Twitter
- Offer speakers that speak to the new and experienced planners
- Continued commitment to offer meeting variety such as study groups, Happy Hours, NexGen
- Hosting meetings at different places such as eMoney, Union League and SEI
- Career Day - continues to grow thanks to our partnership with Cindy Axelrod at Temple University
- Also, increased partnerships with local universities offering a CFP® curriculum - St Joes, Temple, Delaware State and Widener - they are forming student chapters that will feed into our chapter and groom the next generation of planners and leaders of this organization.
There are much more to come, so stayed tuned.
MARK YOUR CALENDARS!
