  • Financial planning 
  • Insurance
  • Investments
  • Taxes
  • Retirement 
  • Estate Planning


  • Leading a successful practice
  • Business management
  • Technology
  • Marketing and lead generation
  • Client communication
  • Business challenges


  • Defining the financial planner professional
  • Passing the torch and attracting new planners
  • Regulation and compliance
  • Future of the profession 
  • CFP Standards 

Who Should Submit?
If you’re passionate about the financial planning profession or you’re a passionate financial planner with insights on other topics, you’re encouraged to add your voice to Annual Conference 2020.


Deadline for Submissions
The Call for Speakers is now open, and proposals are due by 11:59 pm [EST] on Friday, May 1, 2020. Speaker selections will be made the first week of June and sessions/speakers will be announced the middle of June.
