The 6 Best Professional Associations for Advisors

July 26, 2022 |

We recommend joining a national organization with local chapters such as NAIFA, FPA, or AFP to start. Some of these local chapters in the larger organizations are pretty active: for example, FPA San Francisco and several other chapters organize FPA NorCal, which regularly has programming and speakers that rival the quality you’d find at a national conference.

Which RIA Conference Is Right for Me?

June 08, 2022 |

With COVID lockdowns and restrictions now in the rear-view mirror, it’s time to get back to in-person events. While some conferences attempted to adapt by switching to a purely digital format during the pandemic, which was helpful, it just wasn’t the same. A recent survey of 1,000 conference participants around the US found that 70% prefer to attend conferences in person rather than virtually. The best networking usually happens in person since body language and subtle communication cues don’t come across as well over Zoom.  With any video conferencing software, interactions are planned and structured, removing the possibility of those chance encounters with other attendees that can bring real value to your business.
