Michael Kitces Blasts FPA For Naming TD's Schweiss As New President

Kitces, in his article “FPA Selects Largest Corporate Sponsor As First Ever Vendor Representative To Become National Board President,” sharply criticized the FPA for its “bombshell announcement” naming Schweiss to the post. “Which is significant because it means Skip Schweiss is not only not a financial planner himself (or from an advisory firm or organization that teaches financial planning, as every prior FPA president has been in the past), he will be the first-ever FPA Chair that doesn’t actually hold the CFP marks (even as FPA promotes itself as the principal membership association of CFP professionals), and the first-ever FPA Chair who represents a vendor whose business is selling solutions to FPA members."


Kind of like if a non-MD opioid salesman was sudden;y named president of the American Medical Association.
