Cover Profile
A Holistic Approach to Financial Planning
Seven years ago, Rick Stanzione of R&R Group, Inc. located in Washington Terrace, UT was our featured interview in the Register, (Vol 11. No. 3, March 2010).  It gave a profile of Rick and his personal/professional journey. In that interview, Rick felt the focus of the Association to be "continued growth for membership and the resources being offered".

This past year, Rick has joined the IARFC as its newest Board Member. We are reaching out to him once again but from a different perspective. As he now has his first in-person full Board Meeting under his belt, we want to find out more about his interest in the IARFC and what led  him to want to join the Board.
