2020 Registered Programs Conference

Washington, DC
March 16-17, 2020

CFP Board is pleased to announce that the CFP Board Registered Programs Conference will be returning to Washington, DC on March 16 and 17, 2020.

The CFP Board Registered Programs Conference is an annual gathering of financial planning educators and thought leaders coming together with CFP Board and financial services firms. For the second year, students of registered programs are invited to attend a Student Track designed for candidates on the path to CFP® certification.

The Registered Programs Conference provides a great opportunity to network with schools and firms, hear updates from CFP Board, learn about starting a registered program, and share ideas for best practices in financial planning education.

Registered program directors, faculty, academic officers, and students, as well as financial services firm representatives and leadership should make plans to attend this great event in our nation’s capital next spring.
