Don't Miss These Programs - There's Something for Everyone

Just want to remind the FPPTA membership that the program agenda for the FPPTA Trustee School scheduled for January 28-31, 2018 has been posted to the FPPTA website. Please review the program offerings and then don’t forget to register.

The January Trustee School will be held at the Hyatt Regency in Orlando. The FPPTA Education Committee has put together another comprehensive program consisting of the CPPT Program, the CEU Program along with three Special Program Offerings. The complete program will provide 93 sessions having approximately 120 presenters over the 2 ½ day duration of the school!

As many of you know, the CPPT Program is the trustee certification program. There are three program levels: Basic, Intermediate and Advanced.  Testing for each program is held on Wednesday morning at 8 a.m.  PLEASE pre-register if you have decided to earn your certification status.

The CEU Program is also comprised of three concurrent sessions: Breakout A, Breakout B and Breakout C. All sessions are open to the membership whether you are earning your CEU credits, or simply attending the session for educational purposes. The Education Committee designed the CEU sessions to be set up in a hollow square for approximately 50 attendees per session. Please review your program agenda closely … deciding what sessions you’d like to attend, because the limited room space is designed to foster discussion and questions. As a result, the FPPTA Education Committee asks that no session exceed the number of seats available in each room.

The three FPPTA Special Programs being offered at this school are: (1) the FPPTA Individual Retirement Program featuring Dee Lee. This program runs for most of Monday and Tuesday; all members are eligible. (2) the FPPTA Fixed Income Certificate Program, which will be held on Monday, January 29th. This program is only available for members who have completed the CPPT Program. (3) the FPPTA Leadership Boot Camp featuring Don Trone and Steve Banham, which will be held on Tuesday, January 30th and is open to all members. PLEASE REMEMBER to pre-register if you are planning to attend. All sessions have limited capacity.

As we approach the end of 2017, I would like to thank all of the FPPTA Education Committee members who work very hard to provide the best possible educational programs each and every year. I would like to thank the FPPTA Associate members who are so supportive in volunteering to assist with our comprehensive trustee education programs as presenters and sponsors. And I would like to thank the FPPTA staff, consultants and Board of Directors for their leadership and support with providing the best trustee education program offered in the United States.

Last but certainly not least … thank you to all of the trustees and administrators who attend the FPPTA programs throughout the year. Your attendance, support and understanding is truly appreciated.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
