Symposium 2017 was a huge success!! Again, with over 600 attendees, we have marked ourselves as one of the largest FPA conferences in the nation. This year, we welcomed some of the nation's top speakers including Mary Beth Franklin who provided expert advice on Social Security claiming strategies under new law. Also Dr. David Kelly joined us for his 13th year to discuss his economic viewpoints. And we can't forget about Bob Keebler who delivers essential information on income tax strategies. We expanded our breakout tracks to include more specialty topics that cater to a wide varieties of interests.
All in all, there was something gained for every attendee whether you were a brand new advisor, a well experienced advisor, or in more of a support role. An added bonus - It's always great watching people meet new colleagues who can share ideas and/or offer friendship or mentorship.
A big thank you to our FPA partners that help year after year to make Symposium even possible. We hear nothing but great things from our attendees on how much helpful information is gained just by visiting our partner booths.
We look forward to planning Symposium year after year and making it an even stronger interactive experience for those that attend. A huge round of applause for those that are part of this planning process.
We look forward to seeing all of you for next year's Symposium on October 8th and 9th!
