AMBA Provides Scholarships for Military Spouse Financial Counselors

The Association of Military Banks of America (AMBA) is honored to provide annual charitable contributions to non-profits that support servicemembers, veterans and their families.  In 2016, AMBA provided a donation to the Association for Financial Counseling and Planning Education (AFCPE) to provide scholarships for military spouses who are part of a financial counselor fellowship program.  These fellows are working toward or have earned their Accredited Financial Counselor (AFC ®) certification with AFCPE.

The check was presented to the AFCPE Board of Directors during their annual Symposium in Louisville, Kentucky on November 16, 2016.  The Symposium was at max capacity this year, selling out about a week before the event.  The AFCPE Symposium brought together 700 financial counselors, practitioners, students, experts, government representatives, educators, and researchers to share ideas and information and provided ample time for networking with one another.  AFCPE is a leader in the field of financial counseling and education and AMBA is a proud partner and supporter of this fantastic organization.
