We are thrilled to announce that Richard E. Vodra has received the Lifetime Achievement Award by the Financial Planning Association of the National Capital Area.

Criteria for this prestigious award are based on the service provided to the FPA National Capital Area in addition to the financial planning community. We are incredibly grateful to have had Richard as an Independent Spire Advisor during 1997-2012.  The impact he created within our organization has been long-lasting. As creator, convener, and communicator, Richard has helped the financial planning profession explore new directions during more than thirty years of service as an advisor and thought leader.

Since 1995 he has helped organize the Nazrudin Project, a national think tank of planners where Financial Life Planning and other concepts have been developed and spread to the wider financial community. He served for many years on the planning committee of the ICFP/FPA Mid-Atlantic Retreat, including one year as Dean of the Retreat.

Congratulations to Richard on receiving this well-earned 2019 Lifetime Achievement Award.
