One of the identified ways to attract new practitioners will be to focus on what ways we can get more information in front of members of other organizations that share a similar mission as the ADFP. We also seek to strengthen our existing Membership by reaching out to enhance the benefits they derive from the ADFP, to enhance the distinction of being a member in our organization as well as to develop new ways that the ADFP becomes the premier divorce financial planning membership organization in the country.
