MAY 2019 NEWS
Greetings!

First, many thanks to all those who joined us at the 20th Annual Forum on April 29 and made it such a tremendous success! We had an exceptional roster of speakers and the day was well spent networking and learning from each other. We've been thrilled to hear such positive feedback from so many of you about the program, the food, the space—many of you told us this was one of the chapter's best Forums to date! We're so glad you enjoyed it, and, if you missed it, we hope to see you next year.

Next up, we hope you will join us for the Ethics CE Meeting tomorrow, May 15 . This will be the only Ethics CE meeting offered by the chapter in 2019, so if you need your credits, don't miss it!
With best wishes,
Scott Kahan, CFP®
