Professional Development

Earn Free CE Credits
The Journal of Financial Service Professionals provides an easily accessible, no-cost option to earn up to 18 credits a year toward CFP® and American College recertification (formerly PACE) requirements. Each of the Journal’s bimonthly issues is accompanied by a 30-question quiz. Successful completion of the quiz translates to three PACE and CFP® credits. FSP members or Journal subscribers can take the quiz for free. Quizzes remain posted and available to earn CE credit for a full-year. Be sure to remind members of this one-stop resource for earning credits.

Programs and CE Alternatives Amid the COVID-19 Crisis
In case you missed it, the March FSP Focus newsletter highlighted chapter program and CE alternatives amid the COVID-19 crisis.  This newsletter includes ideas to hold virtual programs and offer members ways to earn CE on their own.   Check it out here.  Also see upcoming FSP webinars here---many offer CE. If you need ideas on topics or speakers, please contact us.

Sponsorship Tip

Recognize Your Sponsors Virtually
Here are a few ways to recognize your sponsors and keep them in front of your members, especially since a lot of chapters had to cancel live programs amid the COVID-19 crisis:

  • Include sponsors in your slide presentation for virtual meetings and thank sponsors in the beginning and end of the event
  • Add sponsors and links on your chapter's website
  • Allow sponsors a one-time email to your meeting attendees and members
  • Offer sponsors a speaking slot for a future program

Member Perks

JourneyGuide Free to Members
If you haven't heard already, FSP has entered into a relationship that will provide all members free access for a full year to JourneyGuide retirement planning software, valued at more than $1,000. This arrangement is made in keeping with our efforts to provide valuable benefits to members—which in turn serve as great retention and recruiting tools for chapter leadership.  JourneyGuide can help advisors grow their practice and increase revenue by expanding their advice from wealth management to retirement planning. With JourneyGuide’s proprietary software, advisors can extend their client relationships up to an additional 30 years, converting savings into lifelong income.  This benefit is available to existing members so it can be part of a very strong retention message. It can also be an effective recruiting tool, as member prospects can readily see that the value of this benefit alone far exceeds the cost of joining FSP.  You can find more information about JourneyGuide here.
