A conversation with Daniel McHugh, Marketing Director, FPA

So tell us, what’s new?
The Financial Planning Association (FPA) is pleased to announce that the number of consumers attending financial literacy workshops held by FPA chapters and members in 2022 increased by an impressive 212% from the previous year. This is a significant achievement for the Association’s chapters and members that are dedicated to promoting financial literacy and education in communities across the country.

What’s the impact this has had/or you hope it will have on moving financial literacy forward?

The financial literacy workshops held by FPA chapters and members offer consumers the opportunity to learn about financial planning, budgeting, investing, retirement planning, and other important financial topics. The workshops are designed to provide practical and actionable advice to attendees, helping them to improve their financial well-being.

Among the FPA chapters reporting financial literacy and pro bono financial planning programming in 2022, 230 workshops were held, attracting 17,302 consumers—up from 5,546 attendees the previous year. FPA chapters and members also reported providing 4,424 consumers with 11,506 hours of pro bono financial planning services by 962 individual FPA members throughout the year.
