Master Registered Financial Consultant Certification Board (MCB) recently has voted the following Board Members into their officer positions. The new Board will assume their responsibilities immediately as they tackle the Certification Program’s forward progress for the balance of 2020.

Moving into their new positions are:

  • Chair, Craig Lemoine, Ph.D., MRFC®
  • Vice Chair, Robert Lawson, MRFC®
  • Secretary, Julie Friend, Public Member

The scope of authority of the MRFC Certification Board (MCB) is set forth in the International Association of Registered Financial Consultants (IARFC®) By-Laws. The MCB is a wholly owned subsidiary of the IARFC and maintains general oversight of the MRFC Certification Program. The MCB upholds the IARFC’s commitment to public safety in the Financial Services industry.

The MCB clearly focuses on its task of developing and maintaining a strong and highly valued MRFC Certification Program. Their mission is to provide an ongoing benefit to the general public by granting and recertifying the MRFC credential and upholding the credential as a standard of excellence for ethical, valued, competent, and client-focused financial consultants.

The Board operates independently from the International Association of Registered Financial Consultants (IARFC®) to establish and uphold high standards of competence for the MRFC and its credential holders.

MRFC credential holder Barry Dayley is stepping down from the Chair position, but will continue to be part of the Board of Directors for another term.

“I have respected the work of the consultants who have been on the Board during my time as Chair and will continue to support the new leaders as we move to an aggressive campaign of promoting the MRFC credential to qualified prospects,” states Dayley, “I wholeheartedly advocate the mission of the MCB and encourage experienced financial professionals to sit for the exam.”
