Join us for the inaugural

NAPFA Large Firm Forum
February 7-9, 2018
Fairmont Scottsdale Princess
Scottsdale, Arizona

The Fairmont Scottsdale Princess in Scottsdale, Arizona will be the setting of the 2018 NAPFA Large Firm Forum. Gather with your peers for three days of workshops, roundtables and networking with other large firm leaders.

This is an exclusive event for leaders from large Fee-only financial planning firms of $750 million in AUM and up, and their invited guests. While other NAPFA conferences focus on the issues faced by Fee-only financial planners, the firm leaders invited to attend the Large Firm Forum are a select group of individuals who face special challenges each day as they take their firms into the future. Attendees will participate in programs on authentic leadership, corporate governance and leadership, mergers & acquisitions, and other business issues that enterprise-level financial planning firms must confront.

These sessions will be interspersed with informal and formal opportunities to network with your peers – exercise, cooking demonstrations, early morning yoga classes are some of the possibilities.

The location, the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess, is a highly-acclaimed resort offering world-class hospitality, and the perfect setting to learn with your professional peers and enjoy the Sonoran Desert.

Please consider joining your colleagues for this one-of-a-kind experience.
