This section presents an update on the U.S. financial planning sector, as of February 2004. There are roughly 80,000 certified financial planner (CFP) certificants worldwide and about 37,000 of those outside the U.S. The mission of the Financial Planning Standards Board is to benefit the global community through establishment of core, worldwide standards and commitment to the CFP marks. The Financial Planning Association (FPA) made available an international electronic membership, giving professionals around the world clickable access to FPA benefits such as the 'Journal of Financial Planning' and education sessions in the Virtual Learning Center. Along with online availability, international financial planning professionals have other options for receiving 'Journal of Financial Planning' content: the Journal has formal licensing agreements with sister organizations, such as Japan and Korea. The Journal also grants permission to international publications to print articles on a case-by-case basis.
