Conference hotel rates and additional conference details will be added to this page as they become available.

Meetings Between Firms and Registered Programs

Given the overwhelming popularity of last year's Firms' Night, this year’s conference will provide expanded opportunities for discussions between financial firm representatives and representatives of registered programs.  The scheduled meetings will allow firms and registered programs to discuss ways to partner in strengthening the talent pipeline and supporting students, firms, and our college university partners.  The meetings will be scheduled between 2:00 - 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, August 6, and will be arranged by CFP Board based on preferences submitted by the registered programs and financial firms.  Registered programs and firms will be asked to select their meeting preferences in early July.  Register for the conference soon to secure a better chance at meetings with your top preferences.

Firms interested in attending the Registered Program Conference and participating in the scheduled meetings should contact Sara Muehlbauer at or 202-379-2239.
