Hear from NAPFA Members
"I have been a NAPFA Member for nine years. Since joining, I have felt so welcomed by the NAPFA community and have made connections that have evolved to great friendships. My favorite part about NAPFA is the conferences because that is where I am able to meet other NAPFA advisors and form great connections. I make it a point to go to at least one NAPFA conference each year, and have been to over 10 conferences since becoming a NAPFA member. I wouldn't be where I am today without NAPFA!"
- Ben Jacobs
"It didn't take many conferences or interactions with NAPFA Advisors before I realized many of my fellow Advisors are as passionate about our work as I am!
Passion for our clients and improving their financial lives is the how and why I've built a fee-only firm. Thank you NAPFA, I couldn't have done it without your support and the peers I've met through NAPFA!"
