Why Join FPA?

Why Join FPA?
I wanted to post this email from FPA National as I thought it would be helpful in crafting a message for why people should join FPA.

I would like you to consider taking a powerful step in your personal and professional development by joining me as a member of the Financial Planning Association® (FPA®). I believe you’ll find great benefit in being part of the FPA community –– it has played a valuable role in supporting my success and professional development. FPA is our professional home for everything we need to better serve our clients and enhance our practice.

Let me tell you a little more about membership in the FPA. FPA is the indispensable resource for CFP® professionals throughout our careers, providing tools required for success. The association’s comprehensive collection of products and services is based on four pillars that foster professional development, build stronger businesses, form communities and advocate for the profession—all of which comprise FPA, the professional home for today’s financial planners. As a member, you’ll find:

1. Business Support: The Home for Business Success. For most FPA members, client acquisition can be challenging. FPA’s business success tools help members build and manage their business in tangible ways that drive leads.
2. Community: The Diverse Gathering Place. As the home for CFP® professionals, the association’s communities give members a voice and the opportunity to benefit from fellow members’ unique professional experiences. Community gatherings take place in several online and live formats and are aligned with members’ common interests and demographics.
3. The Authoritative Source for Professional Development. For financial planners who care about delivering real value to clients, FPA’s professional development resources help members stand out from the crowd and become better practitioners. Nearly two-thirds of FPA members say professional development is the most important area of FPA membership to them professionally.
4. Advocacy: The CFP® Practitioner’s Voice. In today’s ever-changing regulatory landscape, FPA is an essential advocate, protecting financial planners’ businesses and guiding the profession. FPA is the only organization that advocates solely and exclusively on behalf of CFP® professionals among federal and state legislators and regulators, and its advocacy efforts influence the certifying bodies that impact financial planners.
