The FPA Awards are designed to recognise members who deliver the highest standards of professional and trusted advice to Australian consumers, as well as those who have gone above and beyond to support their local community through pro bono and volunteer work.
Now more than ever, we want to shine the light on the positive, life-changing advice that you give to your clients. Help us change the conversation and share the good stories about financial advice. By supporting the FPA Awards, you can help us celebrate commitment, talent and passion within our profession.
The 2019 FPA Award nominations open on 29 July. Stay tuned for more information.
Winners will be announced at the FPA Professionals Congress in Melbourne this November.
