    What Is a PFP Networking Group?

    These groups were formed based on feedback that we have received from our membership. The content and location for meetings are determined by the group itself. The cost of the meetings will be determined by the speaker that the group decides to hire and the location. There is no profit generated by the AICPA in supporting these groups; these efforts are being made strictly to support our membership. The groups were formed with the vision that there would be two live or virtual meetings per year and have been designed to afford you the opportunity to gain from the knowledge and perspective of your most successful peers. Due to limited seating and the nature of a networking group, it is important that you make a commitment to attend each meeting of your group. 

    What Is the Value?

    Grown out of a need based on member feedback, the PFP Networking Group provides you, the PFP section member, with the opportunity to:

    • Network with the best and brightest of your peersthe CPA financial planners and most trusted advisors.
    • Stay abreast of new developments through market and current event updates at each meeting.
    • Learn and share best practices for technical strategies and practice management topics.
    • Problem-solve technical issues faced by group members in their practices in an open forum.

    How Do I Join?

    To join, you must be a member of the PFP Section or a PFS credential holder. Email if you are interested in joining.
