Chapter meeting
February 19

Golden Valley Country Club
There Are No Difficult Clients (only advisors who have run out of tools)
7:30 - 10:00 am

Rick Kahler, MSFP, CFP® - President, Kahler Financial Group

The premise is simple: Your client isn't the problem; it is an unhealthy belief system and the relationship we and our clients have with money that matters. This workshop explores how money is viewed by both financial planning practitioners and their clients using both didactic and experiential processes. Two self-evaluation assessment tools (KMSI-R and The Money Script Log), theory, research, and a demonstration are used to discover personal beliefs about money. The planner will learn the beginning phase of helping to facilitate transformation of negative beliefs and behaviors about money toward healthier belief systems.

Thanks to our February Host & Platinum Partner:
PERL Mortgage, Inc.

Pro Bono Workshop: Effectively Managing Healthcare Costs
10:15 - 11:15 am

Join us on February 19th immediately following the Monthly Chapter meeting for a 1-hour Pro Bono Workshop - Effectively Managing Healthcare Costs.

For many, a medical diagnosis can create financial concerns and stressors that make focusing on their treatment challenging. This session will equip financial planners with tools and resources to help patients, their families and caregivers create a path toward financial stability during an uncertain time. Participants will learn about some of the most common challenges faced immediately after a diagnosis and during treatment, with experienced pro bono practitioners providing a process for prioritizing and addressing the financial needs of families experiencing a healthcare crisis, including:

  • Creating and/or examining budget and balance sheets
  • Organizing their finances, tracking and reducing expenses, and managing debts
  • Troubleshooting and anticipating financial challenges
  • Contemplating credit decisions and new uses of assets
  • Examining life, long-term care or disability insurance questions

Select this Optional Item during your registration.

MN Senate Office Building - Room 2412, St. Paul

9:00 am - 3:30 pm

Help us raise awareness of FPA MN among our state legislators. Our goal is to build a relationship with legislators so that they better appreciate the role financial planners and FPA MN plays in the lives of Minnesotans. We need everyone’s help to do that.

Meet Minnesota Department of Commerce Officials - 10:00 AM – You are invited to meet with officials from the Minnesota Department of Commerce (including, we hope, the newly appointed Commerce Commissioner, Steve Kelley). Commerce officials will discuss regulatory initiatives and any pending legislation that will impact financial planners and small businesses, in general, doing business in Minnesota. Commerce staff will be available to answer your questions on their legislative and regulatory priorities.

We hope that you will take time to partake in our democratic process and let your legislators know about all great things FPA MN does.
