This article addresses the role of professors and researchers in advancing financial planning based on the annual meeting of the Academy of Financial Services (AFS) in New Orleans, Louisiana in October 2004. AFS is an organization whose focus is on research in personal financial management and financial services, financial services curriculum development at the university level, and interaction of financial services professionals and academicians. A call for academic research papers is announced well in advance of the annual meeting, with papers selected from that call earmarked for the program. While special sessions are on the schedule, the bulk of the meeting is devoted to presentations of papers that cover a broad spectrum of financial management topics. Sessions are set up where authors present a synopsis of their papers. Following each presentation, a colleague, known as a discussant, critiques the paper. The authors then take the discussants' comments back to their desks and apply them to a subsequent revision. With three papers presented at most sessions, and several sessions being held concurrently nearly nonstop, a lot gets packed into the day-and-a-half-long event. The discussions are thought-provoking and intense.
