The CAAFP Experience
This is one of the few conferences that addresses more than business and speaks unapologetically to who we are and who we can be as a people.”
The CAAFP is well-planned and executed, and kudos to The College for identifying key areas of concern for financial advisors in this community. I was riveted by the knowledge and life experiences shared by all presenters and will be putting much of the information shared into my practice.”
