The International Association of Registered Financial Consultants (IARFC®) has completed the Fall Issue of the Register, a national industry member benefit publication online at www.iarfc.org. This Register explores the theme of “Financial Literacy” and how consultants work to educate their clients and themselves.
Inside the publication are hiring opportunities for Region Directors. These leadership roles will be instrumental in advancing the Association over the next 1-3 years. In his Trustee’s Chair article, Trustee Chair H. Stephen Bailey, Ph.D., MRFC® discusses the “Value of Trust” involved in being a leader – whether it pertains to the Association or a consultant’s personal practice.
Kurt Schroeder, RFC®, is introduced in the Member Focus Section. He is an excellent example of someone utilizing his experience and knowledge from his first career and transitioning it into a second career in financial services. Coming from a nursing background where developing care plans for patients, he is used to combining the data and emotional factors and coming up with detailed plan of action to achieve results. This serves him well as he connects to his niche market of healthcare professionals as potential clients. Kurt is also the first Region Director for the IARFC.
