NAPFA Genesis is a peer-to-peer networking group designed to encourage professional growth and development among NAPFA members who are 33 years old and younger. As part of their membership, all NAPFA members under the age of 33 are automatically enrolled in NAPFA Genesis. Anyone interested in advancing their career, or lending a hand to those who are just starting out, is invited to participate in NAPFA Genesis.

The group is focused on three primary objectives:

  1. Discover: Access information and resources about Fee-Only planning and how to serve clients through adherence to a strict fiduciary standard.
  2. Contribute: Share tools and resources and collaborate to advance themselves and the Fee-Only financial planning profession.
  3. Advance: Access to current job postings and a network of professionals willing to provide mentorship to peers.
