FPA welcomes registrations to 2014 Professionals Congress


The FPA today announced the first in the line-up of speakers to appear at the 2014 Professionals Congress this November at the Adelaide Convention Centre.

Carl Richards CFP® will return to address delegates following his popular appearance at last year’s Congress.

Matthew Rowe, FPA Chairman said: “The FPA is pleased to welcome Carl back to Australia to host a master class for this year’s Professionals Congress. His motivating and thought-provoking message resonated strongly with delegates last year and is in keeping with the Congress theme of ‘Inspiring Greatness’.

“Our 2014 program and theme has been designed to provide delegates with inspiration and practical advice in order to help them do greater things within their practices. Listening to feedback from last year’s Professionals Congress, attended by record numbers of delegates, we’ve kept the format of workshops offered, which will cover four key topic areas: Leadership, Technical, Best Practice and Personal Development.

“The FPA is looking forward to an even bigger and better Congress and to welcoming the biggest community of financial planning professionals together once again.”

This years’ event is set to be just as popular as last year’s Congress in Sydney as financial planners descend on Australia’s home of food and wine. Delegates this year are also encouraged to bring their partners to enjoy organised food and wine tours while being welcomed at the opening and closing sessions of Congress as well as the Future2 Gala Dinner.

Advance ticket release registrations to the FPA’s Professionals Congress in Adelaide on 19-21 November are now open. The FPA is encouraging delegates to register before July 1 to take advantage of the tax deduction before the end of the financial year. Planners who register now will also have first choice of workshops once the program is released.

The FPA will continue to provide further updates and confirmation of speakers and events taking place in the lead up to the Professionals Congress. For more information or to register for the Professionals Congress, please visit: www.fpacongress.com.au
