A message from our 2018 President
Happy New Year and welcome to our new newsletter!

As we close the chapter on 2017 and ring in 2018, it is a time for reflection and re-invigoration. 

The Financial Planning Association of Minnesota continues to be vibrant and one of the strongest chapters in the country. We are continuing to build upon our engagement in community, education, advocacy, and business support. 

As we look forward to 2018, some initiatives that we are pursuing include enhanced member communications, sharing the member experience with additional professionals, further connecting with members outside the Twin Cities metro are a, aligning with organizations that share our interests, and ensuring that the overall value received by our members and partners is commensurate with expectations.

As part of enhancing member communication, we have revamped this newsletter. We’ve refreshed the design to make this monthly message more visual and easy to read. I hope you enjoy reading it each month.

If you have a content idea or story you’d like us to consider for an upcoming newsletter, please send it to our 2018 public relations committee chair Ryan Antkowiak.

Here's to a great year ahead for our chapter!
