Advocacy

Join us for our 2018 State Advocacy Day

February 21, 2018 at 8AM

FPA seeks to advance and protect our profession by proactively building relationships with those who decide and vote on issues that affect our profession. On State Advocacy Day we will spend the day together connecting with our local legislators and regulators to provide them with valuable information that can help guide them as they make decisions down the road.

This year, we will also be having one on one meetings with the Colorado Securities Commissioner and the Insurance Commissioner. Training will be provided on February 15. 

Please contact James Passarelli to participate or call him at 402-415-4349 with questions.
