The AFA and FPA yesterday hosted a webinar to update members on the potential merger between the two associations, as well as provide another opportunity for members to ask questions.
Since the proposed merger was announced in September, there has been much progress on what a merged association would look like and what needs to be done to achieve it. During that time, the boards and executives of the AFA and FPA have been engaging with members and addressing their questions and concerns, and we have been encouraged by the positive feedback to date.
A second round of member consultations will get underway in a month, where we intend to send members the information memorandum, draft final resolutions, and constitution. This will outline the different resolutions that members of each association will be voting on in order to achieve the merger.

The boards of both the AFA and FPA are strongly supportive of the merger. Both organisations believe it will be in the interests of both groups of members to create a united association with a strong unified voice on advocacy, and pooled resources, with a greater ability to deliver services and support to members.
We are looking forward to continuing to engage with members on this important decision for the future of our Advice profession.
