FPA-Houston President’s Letter

January 4th, 2017

 

2020 Vision

 

Future Leaders, Engaged Members, Long-Term Corporate Partnerships


 

Happy New Year! I hope 2016 was successful for each and every one of you, however you chose to define success. I want to begin by expressing my gratitude and appreciation for the Board of Directors in all their accomplishments in 2016. Led by President, Ben Simiskey, the Board worked hard in addressing both challenging and fundamental issues that we believe will enhance the value of your membership within this organization. I can’t stress how impressed I am with the amount the Board accomplished in such a short period of volunteered time, especially given the shallow breadth of our human capital. Thank you.

 

As we move into 2017, I can say with a high degree of confidence, that the current Houston Board of Directors is one of the most uniquely designed groups within FPA National. As of this writing, 64% of our Board are NexGen! Add to that a clear vision of what they want their organization to look like, and I can’t help but wonder what our chapter will be in fifteen years, let alone the next three.

 

In order for us to get there, we’ve devised a 2020 Vision which includes three main focuses:

 

1.       Building future leaders

2.       Building communities with engaged members, and

3.       Investing in healthy, long-term corporate partnerships

 

We believe that by focusing our time and energy in these three areas, the rest will fall into place once atop a solid foundation.

 

Now if you didn’t see this last paragraph coming, you haven’t been a member for very long. Instead of asking you to volunteer (in any capacity you can, and preferably in an area of interest or passion), I’d like to instead pose the following ridiculous statements:

 

  • We can continue to do this alone.
  •  We don’t need your help.
  •  I plan to retire a Board member.
  •  My girlfriend likes it when I talk about FPA.

 

I owe my career, my professional relationships, and my self-development to this organization. I encourage each and every one of you to challenge yourselves and join in. At the very least, we’re open to all sincere ideas in the areas in which you believe need improvement.

 

 

 

 

Sincerely,

 

Adam Frinsco, CFP®, CMT

2017 FPA Houston President
