4th Annual FPA Advocacy Day  |  Washington, D.C.  |  To be Announced: June 2018

FPA Advocacy Day is an important opportunity for FPA members and leaders to gather on The Hill to introduce federal policymakers to our association and profession while displaying FPA's strength as THE association for all CFP® professionals and advocating for issues that are important to practitioners. Participating in this important day will empower you to positively impact government officials at all levels for the betterment of the financial planning community.

In June 2018, FPA members will come together to represent our association in the halls of Congress. FPA, with the support of The Raben Group, will handle the heavy lifting: setting up meetings with your elected officials, preparing relevant materials, and providing training so you can educate your legislators about financial planning and explain what makes FPA members unique.

As an Advocacy Day participant we will provide you:

  • Appointments with the offices of your representatives

  • Networking opportunities​

  • Advance talking points about FPA policies and priorities

  • Background and preparation materials for meetings

  • Casual pre-event dinner and continental breakfast 

​Information about hotels in Washington, D.C. will be provided in your confirmation email after registration. Please note that a major conference will be taking place that same week in the city, so its advised that attendees book their lodging as soon as possible.
