FPA PlannerSearch® is a website that not only provides educational content to consumers on personal financial matters, but also helps them find and engage CFP® professionals in their area. Through robust search functionality, consumers who are looking for financial planning guidance and support can search for CFP® professionals who can help.


The Financial Planning Association® (FPA®) is the country's largest industry association for financial planners and advisers and the Journal of Financial Planning is the official publication of FPA, with a circulation of more than 40,000 professionals.

Its mission is to expand the body of knowledge of the financial planning profession. With monthly feature articles, interviews, columns, and peer-reviewed technical contributions, the Journal's content is dynamic, innovative, thought-provoking, and directly beneficial to financial planners in their work.


One of the most profound benefits of affiliation in any professional association is the opportunity to learn, share and grow with fellow members. FPA facilitates and encourages sharing and camaraderie between members — in person and online with FPA Connect.

Members can use the platform to share their knowledge and insights with colleagues around the world. It is a powerful and convenient way to pose questions to your peers about best practices in planning and business. Communities range from those organized by career stage, such as NexGen, to demographics, such as Women & Finance. 


CFP Board's Career Center is a one-stop shop for both job seekers and employers. It contains job opportunities and internship listings for those interested in a career as a financial advisor. For employers, the Career Center can help streamline the hiring process by providing targeted access to highly qualified financial planning professionals who hold or are pursuing CFP® certification.
