Client Advisory Council

In 1995, we created our advisory council made up of clients. They help us with input, feedback and ideas so that we can develop marketing programs that truly speak to our clients. These programs include:

  • Feedback on Marketing and Advertising Ideas: Their honest opinions keep us centered on what matters most, relevant to our clients’ world, and humble in our efforts.
  • Consumer Perspectives on Financial Planning: Whenever we have questions about how people might be feeling in challenging times, our council offers frank, caring feedback.
  • Client Seminar Ideas: We are dedicated to delivering quality education and information to our clients because they deserve our ongoing service and attention.
