Free consumer Webcast series addresses key financial planning topics

The current economic situation has countless Americans wondering where to turn for unbiased, ethical guidance and advice. To help consumers deal with the current turmoil, Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards, Inc. has developed a new a Consumer Webcast Series featuring CFP professionals addressing key financial planning topics.

Each Webcast discusses a specific area of financial planning and includes practical information and tips that consumers can apply to their personal finances in today's tough times. The topics include:

  • Managing Debt: From Credit Cards to Foreclosures
  • Planning for Your Financial Goals
  • Young Professionals: Launching Your Financial Plan
  • What to Know When Choosing a Financial Planner

The 50-minute long videos are available in English and Spanish and include synchronized PowerPoint slide shows that make it easy for consumers to follow the presentations. Registration is free and requires that listeners enter an e-mail address.

"We hope these Webcasts will help consumers navigate the current situation and get an insight into the benefits of professional advice from CFP practitioners who can help you make decisions based on your personal life goals and financial situation," said Marilyn Capelli Dimitroff, CFP, Chair of CFP Board's Board of Directors.

The Webcasts were recorded during educational workshops conducted at CFP Board's Financial Planning Clinics in 2008 in Washington, DC, and Miami. At those workshops, hundreds of consumers came away with valuable information and advice on a wide range of financial planning topics.

CFP Board will continue to update and enhance its Consumer Webcast Series Web site. Consumers can also explore the Web site for a variety of articles and information on personal financial planning and for help on finding a Certified Financial Planner professional.
