The First Official Student Chapter of the Financial Planning Association
William Paterson University of New Jersey has just founded the first "OFFICIAL" Student chapter of the FPA. The chapter is open to all majors who have expressed interest in a career in Financial Planning and works jointly with FPANJ. We discuss current and relevant financial planning strategies as well as have distinguised members from the Financial Planning community present to us their real life experiences as financial planners.
WPU has both a certificant program and an undergraduate program, encompassing the five degrees of financial planning:
1) Estate Planning
2) Taxation Planning
3) Insurance Planning
4) Retirement Planning
5) Investment Analysis and Planning
We have had guest speakers present to the students about, "Compensation in Financial Planning," and have scheduled presentations on, "Determing Risk Tolerance" and "Marketing Yourself as a Financial Planner".
The Student Chapter is looking for members of FPANJ to volunteer an hour or so of their time to talk to future financial planners at William Paterson University in Wayne NJ. If anyone has any interest in helping the new generation of planners, please contact the student chapter email at: FPAWPU@gmail.com or the President, Nicholas Scheibner at firstname.lastname@example.org.
