The FPA has opened registrations for its annual Professionals Congress, to be held in Sydney in late November.
In a statement, the association said the event “promises to help all levels of financial planners be better informed, better connected and better prepared” for the rapid changes currently reshaping the industry.
“We look forward to announcing informative, motivational and engaging speakers as part of the program in the lead up to congress,” said FPA chief executive Dante De Gori.
“They will share relevant, up-to-the-minute insights and information that will benefit delegates both personally, and professionally.”
The statement added that the FPA’s philanthropic arm, the Future2 Foundation, will also “play a significant part” in the congress, with delegates raising funds throughout the event.
The FPA last month came under fire from a former member for allegedly providing preferential treatment to Henderson Maxwell CEO Sam Henderson during a disciplinary proceeding.
ifa subsequently revealed that one member of the FPA’s Conduct Review Commission, Eureka Whittaker McNaught chief executive Greg Cook, also sits on the board of Henderson Maxwell owner AZ NGA.
