Always Be Learning - LPL Focus 2023

At MONECO, our entire team has a passion to always be learning, both in and out of the office. Last week a few of our peers traveled to San Diego to attend the annual LPL Focus Conference. LPL’s annual conference brings advisors together from across the country with the purpose of empowering them to think bigger, maximize their strengths, and expanding their opportunities. Financial professionals from practices and institutions of all types and sizes attend to bring back new skills to continue to help better support our clients and team members on a day-to-day basis. While there, each team member was also able to meet with the department professionals that they interface with in the back office daily, further helping to build those critical relationships. We can wait until next year!
