Coronavirus Updates & Resources

Last Updated March 30, 2020

The FPA of Puget Sound Board of Directors has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Symposium, which was originally scheduled to take place in Seattle on March 26 and was postponed. The Board has now concluded that it would be impossible to hold the event as planned at a later date.

The coronavirus continues to spread in Washington State (and elsewhere) and the number of COVID-19 cases in Washington continues to increase. This has resulted in the Governor of Washington declaring a state of emergency, in addition to the other emergency declarations that have been issued by the CDC and WHO.

As FPA plans for what's next, such as future in-person events at a later date, we will keep members and supported updated.

Concerning the 2020 Symposium, the FPA Office will begin automatically processing full refunds for all registrants in the coming weeks. If, however, you would like to generously allow the FPA of Puget Sound to retain your registration fee as a contribution in support of our future efforts, please email the FPA Office at [email protected] no later than Friday, April 10, 2020.

We would also like to take this opportunity to recognize the outstanding work of the Symposium Committee, headed by Andrew Barfoot, along with many other contributors, program presenters, sponsors, and exhibitors in designing what promised to be an exceptional event. We realize the FPA of Puget Sound Symposium is one of the most valuable benefits to our members and supporters. It is a chance to not only learn but also connect and network with others in the financial planning community.

We are thinking of you and, again, appreciate your patience as we work through this uncharted territory for FPA and explore the best path forward.

If you have any questions, please contact the FPA of Puget Sound via email at [email protected].
