Celebrating 50 Years of CFP® Certification

Fifty years ago, the College for Financial Planning awarded CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ certification to its initial class of graduates. Those 42 trail-blazing men and women were the first specifically trained in the professional discipline of financial planning.

On December 6, 2023, CFP Board is hosting a Golden Anniversary Gala in Washington, DC celebrating our collective achievements and imagining the impact CFP® certification will have going forward.
