The International Association of Registered Financial Consultants (IARFC®) is proclaiming April 2021 as “April Awards Month” – dedicated to showcasing all of the tributes to Association Members for their work and commitment to the IARFC and the financial industry. With a slate of candidates currently being finalized, the IARFC is preparing virtual presentations starting April 1.
“I truly believe that recognizing people for their achievements and service speaks to the quality of the members and a recognition of their time and expertise. When people give of themselves, their energy and commitment needs to be rewarded. In some cases, our members have a lifetime of achievement and service to celebrate.”IARFC Chair and CEO, H. Stephen Bailey, Ph.D., MRFC®
