This article presents an update on the activities of the Financial Planning Association (FPA) in the U.S. as of September 2002, a year after the September 11 terrorist attacks. Torn from the complacency of a relatively calm existence that admittedly has been taken far too much for granted, the U.S. gained new perspective about the importance of leading fulfilling lives and serving others. The FPA has a new appreciation for what truly matters, and positive endeavors emerged as a result. The organization hopes that what they have generated as a consequence of this tragedy has benefited many, will continue to do so, and that they have in some small way contributed to the strength of U.S. spirit and human goodwill. One of these endeavors was the creation of the National Financial Planing Support Center. It was established on October 8, 2001, stemming directly from the September 11 attacks. Incredible energy and teamwork evidenced themselves over the days and weeks following September 11. The various constituencies of the FPA leapt into action, whether it was to create Virtual Success Forum, send out a call to action for pro bono public support, or to reassure and comfort clients.
