The Financial Planning Association is the largest membership organization for personal financial planning experts in the U.S. and includes professionals from all backgrounds and business models.  We help connect thousands of consumers to competent and ethical planners who uphold the FPA Standard of Care.

Members of FPA are those who commit to the highest standard of professional competence, ethical conduct and clear, complete, disclosure to those they serve.  They deliver advice using an objective, client-centered, ethical process.  FPA membership consists of financial planners and all those who support the financial planning process.  FPA’s nationwide network of nearly 100 chapters encourages professional development and networking on a local level.
