MEMBERSHIP IN THE SOCIETY OF FINANCIAL SERVICE PROFESSIONALS: FAQ
What is the Society of Financial Service Professionals?
- Premier association in the industry—thought leaders and industry experts belong to FSP
- The only community of multidisciplinary professionals—you can build a strong team of advisors to help serve clients better
- World-class resources in your own back yard—local and national networking and education opportunities
Who are the members of FSP?
- Accomplished, credentialed financial advisors, attorneys, CPAs, insurance experts, and other professionals—immediate opportunities for collaboration and referrals
Why belong to FSP when other associations charge less but offer networking and educational opportunities, too?
- Networking with peers (of the same designation or discipline) doesn’t offer the same opportunities for referrals as does a multidisciplinary community like FSP
