Committed to Lifelong Learning

Maintaining the FEA designation is a commitment you make to the rest of your career. The goal in requiring continuing education (CE) is to maintain and improve professional standards. Through continued learning, we want FEA designates to stay relevant and build depth of practice to better serve family enterprises.

How to Maintain Your FEA Designation

By receiving the Family Enterprise Advisor Certification, each designate undertakes and agrees:

    • all laws and regulations applicable to the organizations on which he/she serves;
    • the written codes of conduct of all organizations with which he/she is associated; and
    • The Code of Ethics and Professional Standards of FEA and all other professional codes for bodies and associations to which he/she belongs
