Past Presidents

The Financial Planning Forum, Inc. was founded in 1972 by a group of attorneys, accountants, financial planners, insurance professionals, investment counselors/managers, trust officers and other related professionals who recognized the mutual advantage of exchanging ideas and of networking with others who shared their interests in rendering quality services to their clients.
