Get involved: Financial Planning Day is October 27
Join us at the Wilder Center in Saint Paul from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. 
As financial planning professionals, we understand how important financial literacy is. That’s why we’re proud to partner with the City of Saint Paul to host the 9th annual Twin Cities Financial Planning Day! This free event gives members of our community the opportunity to meet with FPA advisors for one-on-one consultations and attend workshops on a variety of topics.

New this year
This event will kick off with a first-of-its-kind panel discussion. Everyday Minnesotans who have accomplished impressive financial feats (like digging out of $160,000 in debt) will share their financial success stories to inspire attendees.

Want to get involved? Here are some ways you can help out.

  • Volunteer your time. We’re seeking CFP® professionals to host group educational seminars and meet one-on-one with walk-in clients during the event. Click here for more information.

  • Shadow planning professionals. Students and career changers can apply to shadow and network with CFP® professionals as they meet with attendees during the event. Applications are due October 12. Click here for more information.

  • Spread the word. Let your friends and family know about this free opportunity from the FPA. To spread the news, you can share the Financial Planning Day website or Facebook event with friends on social media, or let people know through simple word-of-mouth. We appreciate your help letting the community know!
