The Financial Planning Association of Oregon-SW Washington honored our own Brenna Baucum with the 2016-17 Volunteer of the Year award for her role as the Mid-Winter Conference Chair. Over the past year, Brenna chaired a committee of FPA members and helped with everything from the venue, the national speakers, the menu, the topics, registration, and all of the last minute things that inevitably pop up when the conference is underway. If you have ever participated in some way on a conference committee or subcommittee, then you know how much work goes into putting on a two-day professional conference. We know, because we saw all the extra hours she put in largely on her own time. By many accounts, it was one of the best mid-winter conferences yet. Way to go, Brenna--we're proud to be associated with you.
