Recognized as One of the "30 Most Influential" People in NAPFA's 30 Year History
Diahann Lassus honored as someone who has played a vital role in advancing NAPFA and Fee-Only financial planning
New Providence, NJ (April, 2013) – Since 1983, there have been professionals who have advanced the concept of Fee-Only financial planning and its importance to the public. Those people are counted among the ranks of the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors (NAPFA) and their contributions are being recognized as part of NAPFA's 30th anniversary celebration.
The 30 Most Influential program recognizes those NAPFA members and staff who have had a profound impact on Fee-Only financial planning, the organization, and their peers in NAPFA's first 30 years. The members nominated deserving individuals and voted on those they deem most worthy of being recognized. We are pleased to announce that Diahann W. Lassus, CFP®, CPA/PFS, President of Lassus Wherley in New Providence, NJ and Bonita Springs, FL has been voted among the 30 Most Influential.
"We are thrilled to honor Diahann Lassus and the other deserving individuals who have each made significant contributions to the organization and to the planning profession," said NAPFA Chair Lauren Locker, CFP®. "NAPFA's rich history was made possible because of the contributions by those in our ranks, including Diahann Lassus. While this recognition program could have easily acknowledged many more people, the members voted and provided us a wonderful cross-section of people who have made NAPFA what it is today."
The 30 Most Influential includes people of diverse backgrounds, including solo practitioners, principals in large firms, past NAPFA chairs and elected leaders, and NAPFA staff. Diahann Lassus and other honorees will be acknowledged at the awards banquets at the 2013 NAPFA Spring Conference in Las Vegas, Nevada from May 7-10 and the 2013 NAPFA Fall Conference in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania from October 8-11.
