Big News at the FPA of GP!

Monday, October 27, 2014 8:49 AM | Brian Frederick

It is with very mixed emotions that I share the news that, after 27 years as Executive Director of the FPA of Greater Phoenix and its predecessor organizations, Jo Lynne Hutchinson has announced her decision to retire at the end of our 2014 calendar year.

Jo Lynne has meant so much to our organization; providing stability, continuity and a positive attitude for so many years and it will be impossible to replace her. I know how much she means to so many in our chapter, including myself. Her smile brightens the room and many times she has brought warmth to my day just through a short conversation. So…while I am happy to see her enjoy a much deserved retirement with Brian, I will miss her greatly.

The awesome news is that we have the opportunity to formally honor her December 2nd at the Phoenix Country Club. Make sure to register early at https://jlh.wildapricot.org/ .

In light of this change, the Board has voted to approve Premium Organization as the organization that will handle administrative matters for the chapter going forward. The Board has also voted to approve Melissa Kemp, CFP® to serve as Executive Director. As many of you are well aware Melissa’s company, Premium Organization, handles administrative responsibilities for the Central Arizona Estate Planning Council, the East Valley Estate Planning Council and the Planned Giving Roundtable of Arizona. She has expertise in working with Professional Associations in this capacity and we look forward to leveraging her knowledge and passion for the industry. In Melissa’s role as Executive Director, she will primarily function as a strategic partner helping to drive the mission and vision of the FPA of Greater Phoenix.

We are excited about this partnership and feel it will allow us to provide continuity in the administration of Chapter affairs and position us to drive our strategic initiatives moving forward. When you have a chance, please take the opportunity to thank Jo Lynne for her many years of dedicated service and to congratulate and welcome Melissa Kemp and Premium Organization in her new role.
