Editor’s Note Welcome to the 2007 AFCPE Conference Proceedings! The program committees have selected an outstanding array of presentations for this year’s meeting. Every member should find useful, thoughtprovoking, and even challenging topics. I greatly appreciate the assistance of my graduate assistant, Chris Balas-Spence, a Virginia Tech master’s student, and Cara Defibaugh, AFCPE Member Services Coordinator, in the completion of the 2007 AFCPE Conference Proceedings.
Whether you are a practitioner, an academic, a student, a vendor, or another supporter of financial counseling and planning education and service, please take the time to peruse these presentations by our colleagues.
They have been reviewed by committees of peers and are presented here as a written record.
Posters and workshops have abstracts that are only one page long. They are easy to read quickly. However, don’t let the length of the research papers discourage you. If you aren’t into the technicalities of the statistical analysis, skim over that and focus on the findings and recommendations. Use the author contact information to ask the authors to help you apply their findings to your work. Even the references may give you solutions to problems you face or ideas for future work. If you aren’t a grass-roots program provider and don’t care about how programs are presented, seek to understand the theoretical basis of that education and use the author contact information to gain deeper understanding or to launch a mutually beneficial program evaluation/research project. Benefit from your colleague’s knowledge and experience!
Don’t just focus on topics and processes that are familiar – push yourself to really understand a new research finding or a highly successful practical application. If you are an academic, especially pay attention to the practitioner work presented here. If you are a practitioner, take time to learn what researchers are doing.
Each role supports and informs the other. From the beginning, our organization was designed to provide true communication among and support of each segment of our membership. If we fail to view AFCPE as a broad organization and segment ourselves into narrow interest groups who only seek their own specific current needs, we will fail as an organization and a profession.
As we continue to discuss our profession, its name, the theories we use, and the unique niche our work represents in today’s world, and seek to position ourselves to grow and meet the needs of our members and society, consider the work included here. What are we truly doing? Are we doing everything that is needed by our membership and society both now and into the future? Are we developing and supporting the necessary research base, professional preparation programs, and professional support systems? Where are there gaps that we need to address? How can we best prepare for a productive, useful future? How can we document the impact of our work so that those outside our profession understand and value it?
I believe that AFCPE has an important role for all who care about influencing the well-being of families, individuals and society through providing financial education, counseling, and planning. I hope that each of us will contribute positively to the future of our profession. These proceedings offer each of us the opportunity to take stock of where we are individually, as an organization, and as a profession. Take advantage of them! Use them to launch your work in the coming year.
Please consider submitting your work for publication in the 2008 AFCPE Proceedings and for presentation at the conference to be held in Orange County, California. Visit the AFCPE website (www.afcpe.org) for conference details and submission guidelines.
