WKU Financial Planning Association - FPA

The Financial Planning Association® is the national membership organization for CFP® professionals. We are a student chapter working together with the national organization to prepare college students on their journey to becoming financial advisors. Our chapter allows members to gain insights to the industry, connect with local planners, and also provides volunteering opportunities.
