The Financial Planning Association kicked off its annual conference in San Antonio, Texas on Saturday by announcing that Janet Stanzak is the 2013 president-elect, taking over as president in 2014.
She will follow next year's 2013 president Michael Branham, as the association's leader.
Stanzak is principal and owner of Financial Empowerment LLC in Bloomington, Minn. She has served on FPA's board of directors since 2010, and has been a member of FPA and its predecessor organization, International Association of Financial Planning, since 1985.
This is the first time the FPA board elected its president-elect at its annual conference. The president-elect has traditionally been announced in November.
