Investment adviser representatives should consider attending the AICPA‘s conference in Las Vegas later this month.  “The 2014 Advanced Personal Financial Planning Conference is an intensive, high-level event that will help you prepare for the impact legislative and regulation changes will have on your practice and clients” according to the AICPA’s website.  We have already heard back from IAR’s inquiring as to whether their RIA will approve of them joining the Syndicate or attending the upcoming conference.  Those inquiries alone exemplify the long-standing need for the Syndicate.  But back to the AICPA conference:  it has four tracks for focused learning, and a variety of interesting featured speakers.  It looks to me like you can “invest in yourself” with this opportunity for as little as $2,500 total.  Think about it.
