The results of the MRFC Certification Board elections are in. Elected by a membership vote are Barry Dayley, RFC®, CFP® – Money Concepts in Afton, WY and Dr. Walt Woerheide, ChFC, CFP®, RFC® – The American College in Byrn Mawr, PA. Both IARFC members have extensive experience in the financial services industry.
“This is an exciting time of change and development for the IARFC,” said Chairman H. Stephen Bailey. “We welcome the guidance and expertise of these two gentlemen to our MRFC Board.”
The MRFC Board oversees the accreditation process for the proposed new financial designation that the IARFC is developing through the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA). As the process continues and the application for accreditation is submitted, the Board will work to make the designation significant to the industry and to the financial professional.
“Broad based high level continuing education is the hallmark of a financial planning professional. It builds confidence, opens opportunities, and enhances business performance,” explained newly elected MRFC Board Director Barry Dayley. “The Masters Registered Financial Consultant (MRFC) is this kind of program. I am honored to serve on the Board, and look forward to making this excellent program available to a growing number of financial professionals.”
“With the designation you have to really think about what the objectives are, what the designation is supposed to be demonstrating and how you determine the people who best meet those qualifications,” commented Dr. Woerheide. “I am excited to move the profession forward with this program.”
Both gentlemen will start their official duties September 1.
