FPA Professionals Congress registration open

The Financial Planning Association is welcoming registrations to its 2014 Professional Congress to be held in November at the Adelaide Convention Centre.

This year’s congress will see Carl Richards return to host a master class following his popular appearance in 2013.

“The FPA is pleased to welcome Carl back to Australia to host a master class for this year’s Professionals Congress,” FPA chairman Matthew Rowe said.

“His motivating and thought-provoking message resonated strongly with delegates last year and is in keeping with the Congress theme of ‘Inspiring Greatness’.”

“Our 2014 program and theme has been designed to provide delegates with inspiration and practical advice in order to help them do greater things within their practices,” he added.

Advance ticket release registrations to the event are now open, with the FPA encouraging delegates to register before 1 July to take advantage of the tax deduction before the end of the year.


This year, delegates are encouraged to bring their partners to the event, to enjoy food and wine tours as well as the opening and closing sessions of the Congress.

In addition, planners who register now will also have first choice of workshops once the program is released.

“Listening to feedback from last year’s Professionals Congress, attended by record numbers of delegates, we’ve kept the format of workshops offered, which will cover four key topic areas: Leadership, Technical, Best Practice and Personal Development,” Mr Rowe said.

“The FPA is looking forward to an even bigger and better Congress and to welcoming the biggest community of financial planning professionals together once again.”
