Why ACGA Membership is Important: Chatting with Bryan Clontz, Ph.D, CFP, CAP
When asked why ACGA membership is important, Bryan Clontz, President of Charitable Solutions, LLC, stated that he believes strongly in supporting ACGA’s mission because the important work of the ACGA has been relied upon by planned giving professionals for years. The ACGA is not only important for those who issue charitable gift annuities, but for any person or organization that provides counsel for gift planners, board members, and donors.
“I have been an ACGA member since the first month I started my consulting firm in 2003. I have seen first-hand, having served on both the Rate Recommendation Committee and the Research Committee, how seriously the Board and Committees take their roles to ensure actuarially sound rates as well as advocacy. I am not sure how I could adequately serve my gift planning clients without the research and work of the ACGA.”
