In addition to qualifying for FPA’s MediaSource you will be eligible to participate in future events for the FPA of Central Florida’s Financial Planning Panel. This opportunity allows you to bring your expertise to local groups, organizations, and charities in the Central Florida region.
Most recently, three of our CFP® members hosted a one hour panel discussion at a local charity fielding questions related to investments, the market, and the economy. As we continue to build this program, we are seeking to open additional opportunities and plans are in the works to host similar discussions. In order to be eligible for the FPP, you must attend the Media Mastery course.
