NU Online News Service, June 13, 5:55 p.m. – The Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards and the International CFP Council, both of Denver, say they want to create a new organization that would supervise CFP designation programs outside the United States.
The CFP Board would continue to administer the U.S. CFP program, but the new organization would promote and protect the designation elsewhere in the world starting Jan. 1, 2003.
A task force made up of four CFP governors and four International CFP Council members is laying the groundwork for the new international supervisory organization.
The task force has picked Ray Griffin, an Australian, to become the first international chair-elect. Griffin will also become chair of the International CFP Council in 2003, the CFP Board says.
