The Academy of Financial Services 35th Annual Meeting

September 21-22, 2021, Virtual Conference

 

The Academy of Financial Services will hold its annual conference in conjunction with the FPA BE annual conference. In light of recent events, we have restructured pricing for this year’s virtual annual meeting:

 

$199 for academics and practitioners and $99 for students.

  • The AFS Conference will feature speakers, symposia, and several special sessions. Among them, we will introduce a new panel session for PhD students, highlighting how to best navigate the job market.
  • With the generous support of our sponsors, the Academy has awarded several best paper awards during past meetings and we anticipate continuing Best Paper awards in 2021.
  • We will continue with our Emerging Scholar Award to a current graduate student for promising research work on a paper or poster presented at the conference.
  • In addition, in 2021, we will continue with theProgram Directors track. The goal is to allow program directors to present and discuss program issues and best practices in a panel environment, such as “Working with Your University’s Foundation”, “Capstone Course Cases: What’s the Right Content?”, “Understanding Career Paths and Student Fit” and “Developing a Passionate Program in a Box: Scholarships, Competitions, Student organizations”. We welcome other panel topics deemed beneficial to program directors.

Submission Information: Research papers and abstracts covering all aspects of individual financial management and education are sought for inclusion in the program. Papers in the areas of estate planning, insurance, tax accounting aspects of financial planning, investments, and retirement planning are encouraged. Proposals for panel discussions and tutorials devoted to current issues in individual financial management or the practice of financial planning will also be considered for inclusion in the program. Several sessions will be registered for Continuing Education (CE) credit with the CFP® Board.
