Fall Tallahassee Trip

This past October 14th marked our 14th trip to Tallahassee to advocate on behalf of our 1,237 members. Our agenda included meeting with three regulatory bodies: the Department of Business and Professional Regulation, Office of Financial Regulations and the Division of Insurance Agents and Agency Services, and Florida’s Insurance Consumer Advocate. Over the past seven years, FPA of Florida has developed strong relationships with several agencies in Tallahassee that have influence over our ability to practice financial planning. This fall’s trip offered us the opportunity to continue to strengthen our relationships and make new ones.
