CFP A Challenged Mark

CFP A Challenged Mark

October 10, 2017 — 2:49 PM
The CFP Board has a couple of decades of poor decision making, poor behavior and misguided enforcement attempts to ponder as they move forward. The CFP mark should be a mark of honor, not one that terrorizes the mark holders due to the quasi or wannabe regulatory machinations the group has engaged in over the 20 or so years. If this group leads by solid, balanced example, versus the "look at me" egocentric drive that has plagued the organization, it can thrive...as for the war chest, get real!!
