The NexGen Community

Our “NexGen” group is a sub-community of FPA geared toward aspiring and early-career CFP® professionals. We envision our group to be a place where those who are still learning and growing as professionals can come to network and learn from those who have gone before us.

FPA NexGen Vision Statement

“Elevate the profession that transforms lives through the power of financial planning.”

FPA NexGen Strategic Directive

“To educate, promote, and integrate the next generation of CFP® professionals”

NexGen enacts this directive through the following service lines:

  • Community: Foster inclusive communities dedicated to the development of the next generation of CFP® professionals.
  • Education: Provide high-quality content about the practice, business, and profession of financial planning.
  • Career success: Promote the growth and quality of the next generation of CFP® professionals’ careers.
