FPA State Advocacy Day (AL)

Six members (Rus Jordan, Michelle Carney, Jesse Zora, Ross Kennedy, Maggie Elliott, and Joe Stephens) from the FPA of North Alabama chapter, and FPA National Director of Advocacy Karen Nystrom, recently traveled to Montgomery for the annual FPA / Alabama State Advocacy Day.  During the visit, members met with elected officials to advocate on behalf of our profession & clients.

Once again, Amanda Senn of the AL Securities Commission was a great resource for our chapter.  In addition to meeting with AL Securities Commission Director Joe Borg, meetings were held with:  Senator Shay Shellnutt (pro bono/what FPA stands for), Senator Jabo Waggoner (pro bono/financial literacy), Rep. Danny Garrett (what FPA stands for) Rep. Bill Poole (serves on Budget Committee/ financial literacy) Rep. Richard Wingo (financial literacy /pro bono).

Thanks to all the members that took time from their practices to advocate on behalf of our profession & clients!
