FPA of Michigan -- Passing the Torch

Contributed by: Sandra Adams, CFP®


The Center's long and distinguished history of service to the Financial Planning Association (FPA) continues, as Sandy Adams, CFP® passes the torch to Center team members Tim Wyman, CFP® and Nick Defenthaler, CFP®. Sandy recently left the FPA of Michigan Board of Directors after 7 years of service, including 2 years as board president and 2 years as board chair. Tim has served previous terms of the FPA Michigan board, as well as a term on the FPA National board. Nick is joining as a first-time board member.

Each of our founding partners has served in the leadership of our professional organization -- giving back to our profession is an important goal of The Center and honors our firm value of Professionalism and Competence. Our involvement with the FPA is an honor and tradition that we hope to keep alive for years to come.
