The Financial Planning Association has moved its annual conference later this year from New Orleans to Nashville, Tenn.
   The conference will be held at the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center October 21-24. The conference was originally scheduled for Oct 7-10 at the New Orleans Convention Center.
   "After considerable thought and dialogue with officials at the New Orleans Convention and Visitors Bureau and the New Orleans Convention Center regarding the impact of the recent hurricanes to New Orleans and surrounding areas, we have determined that it is in the best interests of FPA and its members to move our 2006 annual conference from New Orleans to Nashville," FPA Executive Director and CEO Marvin W. Tuttle said in a prepared statement.
   "FPA continues to have discussions with New Orleans convention leadership regarding future meeting opportunities for FPA there in the years ahead," Tuttle added.  
   The FPA noted the decision will not effect its ongoing efforts to provide financial planning services to hurricane victims.
