Dear Members:

It's hard to believe that we are in the fourth quarter of 2016! Since this is the last newsletter of the year, I would be remiss if I didn't acknowledge the dedication and hard work of our board. The most redeeming part of being involved with this fine group of individuals is watching their growth as leaders in our community. I get inspired by all of them every day.

I want to be the first to thank the following people for everything they do to make our FPA community special.My sincerest gratitude goes out to all of you!

Daniel Andersen - Past President

Jenny Hood - President-Elect and Programs

Karen Miller and Matthew Page - Membership

Landon Tymochko - Pro Bono

Ethan Green and James Whiteley - Marketing Communications

Dusty Hoetger - Advocacy

Chase Armer - Career Development

Alexandria Cole - NexGen

That's how quick the rest of this year is going to go! Before you know it, we're going to be toasting champagne flutes into 2017! Well, we've still got stuff to do for 2016, ok. So, let's close the year strong.
Here's what's been happening in the area of Pro Bono:

Financial Planning Days:
The big event is right around the corner! It is scheduled for Saturday, October 22nd from 9am - 3pm at the West Sacramento City Hall. If you have not registered yet, please go to www.FinancialPlanningDays.org if you would like to participate. Many of you have participated in the past, and we always encourage CFP Professionals to join us by providing individual advice and presentations. This is our 6th year, and we've had great support from the City of West Sacramento, which we'd like to say thanks to. Continue reading here

As the year comes to a close, we want to thank our members, sponsors and everyone who helped us grow. We enjoyed meeting new members and introducing them to everyone.

We want to thank Alexandria, Yen and the professors at CSU, Sacramento and UCD Extension for introducing FPA to the students and encouraging them to attend our monthly meetings and become acquainted with the financial planning community.

One of our goals this year was to have four mixers and include other professional groups. We will meet that target, as we have had three so far and included CalCPA and the Placer Estate Planning Council. Please join us for our fourth & final event with Sacramento Estate Planning Council (see details below).

What: A Joint Social Mixer with the Sacramento Estate Planning Council

When: Thursday, October 13, 2016

Where: Brasserie Capitale, 1201 K Street #100 (Inside Esquire Building),

Sacramento, CA  95814

Time: 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Thank you to everyone who came to the ethics presentation in August. Debbie Grose did a great job presenting and also facilitating some thought provoking discussions. And thank you to Networking Solutions, one of our Gold Sponsors, for hosting such a fun networking mixer afterwards. The event was definitely a success!

I cannot believe that we are coming to the end of 2016. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time as the Programs Director. I have enjoyed seeing our meetings full of energy and having discussions with our members about what would make for great presentation topics.

A lot was accomplished in 2016:
  • We had a very successful offsite lunch meeting in Roseville
  • Meeting attendance is up over 16% since last year
  • We were able to offer ethics CE in a new and fun way
  • We had our first sponsor-hosted networking event
