    Personal financial planning is a growing field, which affords CPA financial planners a wealth of opportunity. An estimated 10,000 baby boomers will turn 65 each day over the next decade. As a result, employment of personal financial planners is projected to grow 15 percent from 2016 to 2026, much faster than the average for all occupations according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Trillions of dollars will be transferred from one generation to the next in the coming decades. As this wealth changes hands, Americans will need help with their financial plans to make sure they keep more in their pocket.

    Recipients of the third annual Standing Ovation recognition in personal financial planning are noted on the PFP Section website and during a general session at the Advanced PFP Conference.

    The Standing Ovation program recognizes young CPAs who exhibit outstanding professional achievement in specialization areas. In addition to making a notable contribution to the profession, nomination requirements for the Standing Ovation program in the personal financial planning area include maintaining an active CPA license, being an AICPA member in good standing and holding the Personal Financial Specialist (PFS) credential.
