Become a “go to” source for journalists looking for information and commentary on personal finance, financial planning and the profession! FPA members can attend media training programs through their chapters or they can now participate in organization-wide virtual trainings that are going to be held throughout 2014.

Each 90-minute media training program, conducted by FPA Director of Communications Ben Lewis, covers the essentials in working with journalists, including:​
•How to pitch story ideas to reporters;
•What you need to do to prepare for interviews;
•How you can improve interview performance;
•The tactics for ensuring you maintain a great reputation with reporters;
•Representing FPA and the organizational messages; and
•Much more!

Not only is media training mandatory for all CFP® members who want to receive FPA media queries, but the information will enable you to effectively approach media relations within your own business!

To sign-up for one of the scheduled FPA virtual trainings, simply go to, My Chapter, Media Training, then select the date and complete the registration form. You will receive a confirmation email and will receive the login details one week before the training.​
