The article discusses the accomplishments of the Institute of Certified Financial Planners (ICFP) in 1989. The institute formed the National Association of Investment Advisers (NAIA) in response to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission's (SEC) call to the U.S. Congress for the authority to establish a self-regulatory organization (SRO) to oversee and examine registered investment advisers (RIA). According to Robert P. Goss, ICFP executive director, ICFP set up the NAIA as a potential SRO alternative to the National Association of Securities Dealers (NASD).
