President’s Message

Ken Robinson, CFP®

I hope everyone had a wonderful summer and enjoyed lots of family time.  While it certainly does not feel like it at the moment, cooler fall temperatures are right around the corner.  Now if we could just figure out the quarterback situation with the Redskins!  August was a quiet month for the chapter, but we did have a great turnout for our first annual FPA NCA Night at the Ballpark on August 8th. 

We have a busy schedule of great events planned for this fall, starting this Wednesday, September 2nd with our FPA NCA Happy Hour  event at Chima Restaurant in Tysons Corner, VA.  Our happy hour events are always fun so come out and celebrate the end of summer with your colleagues!

We are very excited to announce the second annual FPA NCA Community Day of Service on Friday, September 11th.  We will be working directly with a local non-profit called Home Stretch that focuses on the problem of homelessness in the metro area. We have also arranged for assignments at Ronald MacDonald House and Martha’s Table! We look forward to a busy day of community service! If you are interested in giving back to your community by volunteering your time, please click HERE for the details and to register.

We also have two fantastic luncheon programs planned for this fall.  Our first fall Luncheon Program will be held on Thursday, September 17th at the Bethesda Country Club, featuring continuing education programs on reverse mortgages and the language of risk.  Please click HERE for the details and to register. 

Our second fall Luncheon Program will be held on Thursday, October 15th at Maggiano’s Restaurant in Tyson’s Corner. The luncheon will feature two great continuing education programs on long term care and investing for income. Please click HERE for the details and to register. 

And finally, we have another great volunteer opportunity in October at the Metro Washington Financial Planning Day event which will be held on Saturday, October 17 at the Columbia Heights Educational Campus.

We need your feedback and suggestions to help us make our programs even better. Please reach out to us with your thoughts and ideas.  The contact information for our Board of Directors is listed HERE.  And please get involved and volunteer for one of our committees.  It is a great way to make an impact and to build new relationships with your colleagues.
