Committees FPA of GA

The Professional Issues Committee goal is to actively monitor legislative and regulatory issues and developments relevant to the mission of the FPA and bring our mission to the community as a whole, through education and dissemination of information, as well as to help FPAGA members build and maintain a practice based on strong professional ethics by communicating clearly to the membership and the leadership about legislative and regulatory matters.

The Career Development Committee is dedicated to supporting the FPA in its efforts to build a strong professional community. Their mission is to provide FPA members, students, career changers and those new to the profession with opportunities to enhance their careers and deepen their involvement in the profession by creating a pipeline between generations and career stages. 

The Community Outreach Committee’s objective is to be a liaison between people in need and/or crisis and the Pro Bono Volunteers of FPA of GA. Our role is to develop programs that both meet the goals of our partners in serving those in need and provide meaningful opportunities for volunteers to provide solid, objective financial education. The committe will also focus on non-financial planning activities within the communiyt such as coat drives, collecting school supplies for low income children, walk-a-thons etc. In so doing, we seek to demonstrate to the non-profit community and the community at-large that FPA is the Heart of Financial Planning.

The committee is responsible for educational content of all our quarterly programs, and the Regional Conference. We research topics and speakers for all the chapter meetings and Conference. Our chapter administrator handles most of the details. You'll have opportunities to network with industry leaders, national experts and other members while shaping the education of our chapter. Where else will you have the opportunity to get familiar with the cutting edge issues of our industry and meet many of its leaders?

We communicate and engage with existing members to increase participation in the chapter, recruit new members and follow up on member issues. The Committee initiates phone calls to highlight specific events and gain feedback, organizes social events and promotes FPA Connect. It is a great committee to be a part of if you want to get to know our members and improve your networking skills.

The Partnership Committee’s objective is to obtain partners and sponsors for the FPA so that the organization has enough revenue to fund its programs and operations. There are several different packages that the Committee offers and “sells” to prospective partners. It is the Partnership Committee’s goal to completely sell out the Regional Conference booth slots through these annual packages as well as solicit participation from the partners for various marketing opportunities throughout the year. It is also the Partnership Committee’s objective to encourage partners to be involved with the FPA community and to take advantage of their various benefits in order to maximize their partnership dollars and retain their partnership commitment.

We establish strategic relationships with local allied professional organizations such as the Estate Planning Council, Society of Financial Service Professionals, and the CPA Society with the goal of promoting potential referral opportunities for FPA members. It is a forum through which new ideas can be generated to promote the image of the financial planning profession. Under this umbrella, we have CPA, PFS, CFP® and CFA liaisons, as well as transitions and NexGen activities

The Public Relations Committee members plan and direct programs designed to create and maintain a favorable public image of the financial planning profession. We work together to develop strategies for increasing public awareness of financial planning in general and the FPA specifically. We also promote financial planning and the FPA to the media as well as coordinate the dissemination of news releases, public service announcements, financial news and other information to local news outlets, including social media.
