September chapter meeting: The future of financial advice, business value of diversity
Tuesday, Sept. 21, from 7:30-10 a.m.
What does the future hold for financial planning? What is the business value of diversity?
Join this month’s virtual chapter meeting to learn ways to provide more value to clients both today and tomorrow.
Our September meeting will feature a presentation by Ajamu Loving, PhD., CFP®, assistant professor of finance at University of North Texas at Dallas, about what factors are shaping the current landscape and will grow more important in the years to come. The second hour presentation will focus understanding diversity in our industry, and how different individuals from different backgrounds may change the way advisors are expected to serve clients.
Are you a CFP® professional looking to make a difference? We hope you’ll volunteer and help us provide free financial consultations to fellow Minnesotans during our weeklong event. You can choose to participate virtually Oct. 4-8 or in person at the Wilder Center in Saint Paul on Oct. 9.
If you'd like to volunteer, please sign up here, and make sure to complete Pro Bono training prior to the event.
Reach out to FPA MN Volunteer Coordinator Cameron DeKruif at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions or to request additional information and get involved!
