“The PFP Section supported the development of my financial planning practice with best practices aligned with my CPA professional value. In the beginning, the PFP Section’s how-to guides gave me the confidence of being on the right track. Along the way, it connected me to deep and wide expertise from the profession’s thought leaders. It’s very comforting to have such a level of excellence on your side. The section’s extensive resources create value no financial professional can miss … or should do without.”
