April chapter meeting: Diving into our industry
Tuesday, April 23, at 7:30 a.m.
Our profession is always changing. For this month’s chapter meeting on April 23, we’ll dive into several important aspects of our industry.

This stacked lineup will kick off with a presentation from Bob Veres, editor and publisher of Inside Information, on the future of the financial planning profession and the top 10 trends to prepare for.

In the second hour, Veres will explore the six dimensions of client service. This will include ways to measure and manage client service components, as well as intentionally create more engaged clients.

Special ethics meeting
The CFP® Board recently changed its ethics standards. Immediately following the April chapter meeting, there will be a special session on these revisions.

Presenter Dan Candura , founder of Candura Group , will explain the revised standards and provide examples of how this could apply to the work you do each day. Attendees with CFP, CIMA and NASBA/CPA designations will receive two hours of Ethics CE.

FPA in the news
Our Pro Bono Committee helps organize events across the Twin Cities, as well as facilitate pro bono requests within our community. Many of these requests are from Minnesota families struggling financially after an unexpected medical diagnosis.

Pro Bono Committee Chair Tiffany Walker stopped by KARE 11 recently to share financial tips for families experiencing a medical crisis and how the FPA helps those in need. 

New members – we appreciate you!

OneFPA update
Announced last year, the OneFPA Network is a collaborative effort among all FPA communities to deliver a consistent and indispensable member experience, drive more alignment and integration, and empower volunteer leaders.

Since the announcement, FPA National launched listening tours with chapters across the country to collect feedback. Our Minnesota chapter joined a listening tour session in late 2018 and since then, members of our local board have participated in multiple focus groups, worked with other FPA chapters, held direct conversations with FPA National Board members and staff, and secured representation on FPA National's Technology Task Force. Through these channels, our chapter has voiced comments and asked thoughtful questions about the plan.

FPA National will soon be taking the feedback provided by chapters and members and looking to next steps. For the latest updates, visit the monthly round-up, OneFPA Network website and FPA Connect website
