We are proud to announce that the Angus Watt Advisory Group hosted a celebration in honour of own Dawn Hawley on February 27. We were thrilled to bring Dawn, her family, friends, and clients together to raise a glass to her professional success and recent recognition with the Canadian Financial Planning industry’s highest honour.
In November 2018 at the Financial Planning Standards Council annual Celebration of the Profession Week, Dawn Hawley received acclaim from her peers as the recipient of the Donald J. Johnston Lifetime Achievement Award in Financial Planning. Dawn was recognized for her lifetime advancement of CFP certification and her significant impact on the financial planning profession. Notably, this recognition has only been granted 6 times since 2006 when it was first awarded.
“I am honoured to receive the Donald J. Johnston Lifetime Achievement Award in Financial Planning,” says Hawley. “I strongly believe in the positive impact that professional financial planning has on the wellbeing of Canadians and I’ve been proud to devote much of my career to this fantastic profession.”
As part of the award, FPSC makes a $10,000 donation in the award winner’s name to charitable organizations of the winner’s choice. Dawn chose two as recipients of the donation: Edmonton Community Foundation and the Financial Planning Foundation.
In addition, the Business Career College has announced a new scholarship in Dawn’s name that will provide enrollment for one student per year into the College’s core curriculum to pursue CFP designation.
The Angus Watt Advisory Group is a team of people that believes in trust, clarity and heart in the work we do each day with our clients. Dawn is a shining example of who we are, how we live our values, and the focus we put on serving our clients with the highest professional standards.
Cheers to you, Dawn. And thank you for helping make lives better for Canadians!
