    I have watched FSP grow and gain influence in DC over its 5 year history.  FSP is a recognized organization of respected professionals.  It quickly has become the “go-to” source for top-tier candidates to fill positions in both the private and public sectors.

    FSP convenes a superlative group of seasoned government relations practitioners. I have been enriched by the variety of networking events held throughout the year. Notably, the organization’s esteem within the public policy ecosystem draws the full spectrum of stakeholders, including Members of Congress.  As a young professional, it has been great to connect with my peers in an inclusive setting.

    FS Professionals has been a wonderful organization for engagement for me as a banker, a U.S. Treasury official, and an entrepreneur. It serves a crucial and important role in diversity and inclusion and the advancement of professionals on the Hill and Industry. The engagement of our elected officials, appointees, and staff is critical for policy in America.

    FSP has provided the Black community with ample resources and connections to thrive in the financial services sector. I am truly appreciative of De’Ana Dow and the amazing Board Members of FSP. They’ve empowered Black people to feel like they belong in positions that were once unthought of. We’ve found a place to develop, so we can lead. And I thank FSP for that!
