About Our Members
The Pro Bono Committee consists of a pool of approximately 100 members from which we draw participants to present workshops or to work individually with clients on financial counseling issues. The Committee includes CFP® certificants and financial planners with a wide range of experience. New planners can receive relevant work experience credits for their work with the Pro Bono Committee.
The committee encourages new members to gain experience through a process of training, observation, and hands-on experience. All pro bono volunteers are required to complete a one-hour online FPA Pro Bono Financial Planning Training course.
Pro Bono Committee meetings take place on the third Wednesday of every other month, sometimes bringing in allied professionals who are experts in their field to provide education on relevant topics facing the low-income, low-asset publics we serve. It is possible to participate via conference call. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for instructions.
