Purpose: The objective of the committee is to increase awareness of the Financial Planning Association and its members in the Kansas City metro area. The committee selects activities that promote Financial Planning to a broad audience. Committee members work closely with Pro Bono, Media Relations and Membership Chairs of the Board.
Activities/Events: Committee members volunteer within area high schools and assist teachers who are involved in teaching students about their finances. Programs are underway at Lee’s Summit North High School and four high schools in the Shawnee Mission school district. The committee also works with requests from National FPA to make presentations at local businesses. The topic is determined by the employer and the materials are provided by FPA. The committee assists its members in awareness of Financial Planning Week and any items of interest which can be passed on to member’s clients.
