Of the many highlights of the 2017 FPA Annual Conference, perhaps the most poignant was a ceremony to honor 2017 P. Kemp Fain, Jr. Award winner Dr. Dave Yeske, CFP® on the morning of October 3.
The award, recognizing one exceptional individual who has made outstanding contributions to the financial planning profession, is the highest honor FPA bestows and represents the pinnacle of recognition in the space. Dr. Yeske was called to the stage to accept the award in front of a packed house of his financial planner peers and thought leaders in the industry and the profession, and his impassioned speech about the transformative power of financial planning received a standing ovation.
The ceremony also included remarks from Yusuf Abugidieri, CFP® and Guy Cumbie, and a moving video tribute featuring comments and praise from Dr. Yeske’s colleagues and friends attending the event. You can watch the full video below:
