Chartered Advisor in Philanthropy® Study Group Update
By: Richard J. Letocha, J.D., CFP®
The Chesapeake Planned Giving Council is convening a study group for CAP® certification. Many of you have expressed interest – thank you! There remains ample time for you to register your interest in participating. The study group meetings will be held from September, 2023 to May, 2024. This time window aligns with the support services for local study groups that are offered by the American College of Financial Services, which sponsors CAP® certification. We’re excited to partner as closely as possible with the College and are delighted that their faculty and study group resources will be available to the cohort of CAP® students who will be a part of this study group.
The attached flyer explains the CAP® program in more detail. Please also visit the following link for additional information, including the pricing: https://www.theamericancollege.edu/designations-degrees/CAP
The CAP® program is designed to reflect the diverse work experiences of both advancement professionals and those in related fields. Accordingly, we expect this cohort of CAP® students will include both fundraisers and those who work in fields such as wealth management, accounting, insurance, and law. To help us establish a diverse cohort of students, we hope you’ll continue to share the news of the study group within your network. As we approach the start date for the group, we’ll increasingly publicize the study group through the Council’s social channels and website.
To register your interest, or to request more information, please reach out to Richard Letocha at email@example.com.
