CFP Board's annual Registered Program Conference brings together faculty and program directors from institutions around the country that provide professional financial planning education and assist individuals in pursuing CFP® certification. It provides an opportunity to connect with CFP Board and faculty and program directors from financial planning education programs around the country, to share best practices for financial planning education, and to learn about CFP Board's commitment to education partnerships.
This year’s theme, Awareness; Education; Induction, will be a platform for furthering our discipline relative to specific subject matter areas, engaging students both within the classroom and in online learning platforms, as well as facilitating certificate and degree-seeking students’ journeys toward CFP® certification.
