|2010 Sponsorship Opportunities
If you, your company, or any of your business partners would like to support the FPA of Pittsburgh Programs, Sponsorship Opportunities are currently available at various levels for Chapter meetings and events, including the Financial Four'um.
|5th Annual Golf Outing
Foursomes are already forming for this year's golf outing on April 30 at Olde Stonewall Golf Club. Individual golfer registration is also encouraged. Don't golf? Join your fellow FPA members for dinner after the event. Register now and spread the word to your colleagues and friends.
Are you under the age of 36? Are you a new or young planner interested in learning from your peer group? Are you looking for opportunities to network with colleagues your own age? If you answered YES to these questions, it's time to join the new NexGen Pittsburgh Chapter! If you answered no to the questions, but know an up and coming planner that would be interested, please encourage them to join NexGen. Contact Michael McGrath at Michael.McGrath@hefren.com or Lauren Peck at LPeck@SavingMyTime.com for more information and to be added to the NexGen mailing list.
Please also join us at our first event on Thursday, May 13, 5:30pm at Hofbräuhaus Pittsburgh, Southside Works, 2705 South Water St., Pittsburgh, PA 15203.
"FPA NexGen is a Community of Interest in the Financial Planning Association with a vision of ensuring the transference of wisdom, tradition, and integrity, from the pioneers of financial planning to the next generation of our profession."
