This article highlights the significance of the creation of the Financial Planning Association (FPA) for the financial planning profession. Only eight months old, the of the FPA by its predecessor organizations, the International Association for Financial Planning and the Institute of Certified Financial Planners, has become widely recognized as the first pivotal step in the unification of the financial planning profession. A founding principle of the FPA was the commitment to promote and advance the Certified Financial Planner (CFP) marks. The FPA board of directors, at its July business meeting in Chicago, reaffirmed this commitment by rededicating itself to promoting the CFP mark as the cornerstone of the financial planning profession. As a result, you will see an increased emphasis from FPA staff to consistently and persistently communicate the CFP message through internal and external strategies and tactics to all key publics. In addition, FPA's commitment to the CFP licensee goes further by helping those who seek the designation to attain it. As one of its first initiatives, FPA has launched an effort to stimulate a number of venues for financial planning career development.
