FPA of Michigan NexGens



    What is “NexGen” and what is the group’s mission?
      Those in the financial planning profession, age 36 and under, as well as other young allied professionals. NexGen strives to provide a network that serves to:

    • Support, advise and encourage one another in our professional advancement;
    • Promote, foster and direct programs that aid in knowledge transference; and
    • Explore issues common to younger planners and seek means of accentuating the positives and finding resolutions for the negatives.

    Why consider coming to NexGen events if you’re under the age of 37?  Pretty simple – our profession is aging and it’s up to us as the next generation of planners to continue to move financial planning in the right direction. You will also benefit from personal and professional growth by connecting with planners who are dealing with similar issues as you.

    I’m older than 36 but I have younger staff and contacts who I think could benefit from this group – what should I do?  Fantastic – don’t keep us a secret! Feel free to have them contact us, even if they are not current FPA members. We’d love to chat and see if the group can benefit them.

    When does NexGen meet?  The FPA of Michigan NexGen has two active groups, one in Grand Rapids area and one in Ann Arbor. We are also looking to add a group in the Royal Oak area. For information on upcoming NexGen events, click here.
