This paper traces the history of the Institute of Certified Financial Planners in 1988. Discussions toward establishing a mutually beneficial relationship between the institute and the International Association of Financial Planning (IAFP) reached an impasse, according to Charles G. Hughes Jr., institute president. As Hughes noted in his column in Institute Today, talks had stalemated because the two organizations are at a philosophical impasse, separated by intrinsic differences on important issues. According to Hughes, fundamentally, the objective of IAFP was to be the principal organization in the financial services industry, while the institute was dedicated exclusively to the financial planning profession.
