President's Message

Hello Everyone!

I hope that you and your families are doing well as we all continue to adjust to this most unusual time in our world. We have all learned new phrases like Social Distancing and Curbside Pickup……….and exactly how far 6 ft is 😊

I hope you all enjoyed Lynn Campisi’s ZOOM presentation for the April Monthly Meeting. In May, we will have a presentation and update from Anoop Mishra of the Birmingham Branch of the Atlanta Federal Reserve. His presentation will cover some of the steps the Federal Reserve to taking to deal with the economic impacts of Covid-19.  It is likely that this meeting will be virtual as well, but we will let everyone know as soon as possible. At this point, the Federal Reserve Building is closed the visitors and presentations.

I would encourage everyone to take a look at the National FPA website as they continue to add content for us to better serve our clients. That website is .

The joint meeting with our FPA Chapter and the Estate Planning Council has been rescheduled from May 7th to November 5th, so please make that update on your calendars. We also hope to be able to reschedule our membership event to a date in the late summer or fall, but more to come.

I hope everyone continues to stay safe and we certainly hope to be together again soon!
