Each year, the AFCPE Symposium brings together a diverse and inclusive community of professionals working across the personal finance field.
AFCPE Symposium is the intersection of financial education, research, and practice. The expertise and passion of our community make it an event like no other!
There are two ways to achieve AFCPE member status.
1. If you paid the annual professional member dues of $175 (or $115 for certification candidates or $40 for student members) for the current symposium year (2023), you are entitled to the member registration price. Check your AFCPE membership status at my.afcpe.org.
2. If you attended the 2022 Symposium, you automatically received a complimentary membership through December of 2023 and may register at the member rate for 2023 Symposium. To renew your membership come December, a separate purchase will be required. Renew at my.afcpe.org.
The certification program and membership are completely separate. Membership dues are paid every 12 months. Membership dues are $175 for our professional members, $115 for our certification candidate members and $40 for AFCPE student members.
If you have successfully completed the certification program, you will pay an annual fee to maintain your designation ($75). If you would like to become a member in addition to maintaining your designation, you would need to pay both the certification annual fee annually and the membership dues every 12 months.
All presenters are required to register for and attend the 2023 AFCPE Symposium.
Accepted presenters in the initial submission will receive a 25% discount on AFCPE Symposium Registration. (Maximum three discounted registrations per submission)
