Stephen Bailey, MRFC®. “Our Members Award Recipients are examples of the high level of quality of our professional practitioners. By encouraging others to seek membership, they widen the versatility and influence of the Association. I wholeheartedly thank them for their contributions.”

For the benefit of the consultants and the clients they serve, the IARFC began an Ethics Approved Program over three years ago. Consultants are constantly monitored for their client/prospect relationships. Any discrepancies in their financial business practices are duly noted. Those with clean records are awarded an “Ethics Approved” status visible to the public.
who refer other members to the Association stand out as believers in the
importance of our values – especially when it comes to ethical behavior,”
commented Charlotte Isbell, IARFC Chief Operating Officer. “From them come the
most important testimonials of the benefits of the IARFC for the consultant and
ultimately to their clients.”
