AFCPE members are the people who really make things happen – they create policy, do the research, develop programs and work with people who need their expertise.
~Longtime AFCPE Member, Syble Solomon
The AFCPE Board and Staff look forward to many aspects of the Annual Research & Training Symposium. We look forward to catching up with old friends and colleagues, to meeting new leaders and up-and-comers in the field, to expanding our knowledge through an incredible line up of speakers and sessions…the list goes on and on. But the one constant we eagerly await time and again is our Awards Luncheon, held each year on the final Friday of the symposium.
What makes the AFCPE awards so unique is that they are peer nominated and peer reviewed. Each year AFCPE members nominate their fellow members, peers and colleagues who are doing great work in education, research and practice. And this year, we are pleased to announce that the 2014 nominees and award recipients truly represent the breadth and depth of the great work being done in the field.
We invite you to join us this November when we recognize and celebrate the following 2014 AFCPE Award Recipients for their achievements:
Mary Ellen Edmondson Educator of the Year:
Outstanding Consumer Information:
Outstanding Educational Program:
MFLN Personal Finance Webinars
Financial Counselor of the Year Award:
Outstanding Conference Paper Award:

Outstanding Research Journal Article of the Year:

Thank you to all the AFCPE members who submitted nominations for this year’s awards, to our Awards Task Force and reviewers for your time and commitment to the awards process, and to our nominees and recipients for the good work you are doing to advance the field!
And to those of you joining us in Bellevue this November, we have one more award that will be announced live at the Symposium. Stay tuned for the recipient of the esteemed Distinguished Fellow Award – an honor that recognizes the significant and long-lasting contributions that one of our members has made to AFCPE over the organization’s history.
