Personal Financial Planning

Quarterly events keep Personal Financial Planning graduates involved socially and sharp professionally. Speakers’ topics cover the gamut: sometimes focusing on niche markets like divorce planning; other times on the human aspect in prospective client intake; and others, matters on everyone’s minds, e.g. the mortgage crisis. Meetings are low-key and friendly, and open to any interested, regardless of industry.
