An Update to the FPA of Metro New York Chapter Community Regarding COVID-19 (Novel Coronavirus)

March 17, 2020
Dear Chapter Members and Friends,

We have all been touched by the unprecedented, rapid developments surrounding COVID-19. We share your concerns and have been monitoring the situation closely. Your health, safety, and well-being is our top priority. With this in mind, the Metro New York Chapter Board has been working hard to reschedule and transition chapter programming online to continue to deliver value and provide support to our community during these difficult times.

As a result, the Metro New York Chapter Board has made the following decisions: 

Annual Forum 2020: The FPA of Metro New York Annual Forum 2020 scheduled for Monday, April 27, 2020, will be postponed to a later date in the fall. All registrations will be credited toward the rescheduled event with paid registration rates honored. If you are unable to attend the rescheduled event, you may request a full refund. We will send a separate communication to those of you who have registered. 

Metro New York Chapter Meetings:
We are committed to continue providing high quality CE programming without interruption. For the foreseeable future, all chapter continuing education meetings, committee meetings, and study group sessions will be held virtually in line with recommendations from the Center For Disease Control (CDC), New York State, and New York City authorities. 

Pro Bono Activities: We are working with our pro bono partners to provide pro bono financial planning services virtually. We encourage you to participate in this important work. FPA of Metro New York has been a leader in providing pro bono support since 9/11, and our members have risen again and again to meet the needs of the New York community in times of crisis. If you can contribute an hour or two virtually, please email

Thank you for your ongoing support and engagement with the chapter in the midst of these developments. Community is more important than ever during challenging times, and we are working on additional ways to stay connected with each other virtually. Look for additional updates via the chapter’s email newsletter and private LinkedIn Group.  

Please take all necessary precautions to keep yourselves and your loved ones healthy and safe. FPA is your professional home, and we are here to support you.

With best wishes,

2020 Chair
