The Financial Planning Association announced Wednesday that Michael Branham, CFP, a financial planner at Cornerstone Wealth Advisors, based in Edina, Minn., had been elected 2012 FPA president-elect, with his term beginning in 2013.
Branham (left) has served on FPA’s Board of Directors since 2009 and has chaired its Professional Issues and Financial Integration committees.
In an exclusive interview with AdvisorOne, Branham was asked about the direction the organization will take during his tenure.
“It’s not an agenda-driven organization year-to-year, only because the executive leadership then loses its continuity,” Branham said. “However, having said that, there are issues that I’m passionate about that we will certainly address.”
He mentioned the organizational review that FPA is currently undergoing, which he says is meant to “ensure the organization’s values are in line with, and reflect, the values of our members.” The results of the review will play heavily into his agenda during his term.
