This article presents the business networking opportunities available at the September conference of the Financial Planning Association, FPA-Seattle 2007. Close to one fifth of the registrants are from outside the United States and special focus has been given to global issues. More than half of the programming and education sessions are internationally relevant with panels of financial planning leaders accessible for question and answer sessions. The author notes the Certified Financial Planner (CFP) mark is now granted in 20 countries, and that the conference is a chance to experience the expanding reach of the profession with global colleagues.
