Networking sessions and exhibitors connect the IARFC professionals. A welcome reception, awards banquet and in between breaks provide quality time to talk with consultants from across the U.S. and internationally.

The Finals of the IARFC National Financial Plan Competition are conducted during the conference with the top three students explaining their financial plans and competing for top honors. Experienced consultants become the “fictional family” who vote for the student consultant they wish to “hire” ultimately awarding them first place. “I have attended these finals,” commented H. Stephen Bailey, MRFC IARFC Chairman. “They are fun, entertaining and definitely challenging for the students. I enjoy seeing them taking on a bit of real world experience in presenting their findings and trying to win over the judges.”

The complete agenda, lodging and Biltmore estate guest tour information is available on the IARFC website. Download the registration form and send it into the IARFC. “It’s not your ordinary big city convention-type visit,” continues Bailey. “At the Biltmore you can attend your CE session, relax in the mountain setting and appreciate the splendor of a unique period of history.”
