Parker qualifies for conference

Roy L. Parker, an Edward Jones financial advisor in Washington, qualified for the firm’s 2012 Financial Advisor Leaders Conference.

This conference recognizes financial advisors who are among the leaders in the financial-services firm. The conference also will provide additional training to help them serve more individual investors in their communities.

Parker was one of only 570 financial advisors who qualified out of the firm’s more than 11,000 financial advisors.

The 2012 conference will be held in May at the firm’s headquarters in St. Louis.

“Qualifying for this conference shows a tremendous amount of discipline, commitment and work ethic,” said Alan Kindsvater, an Edward Jones partner responsible for financial advisor training and host of the conference.
