  • There is a page for including your NHSPA membership dues in the total. You can also add additional memberships if you are completing the form for more than one adviser.
  • The NHSPA and Walsworth will be offering a free pizza lunch for advisers from 11:30 to 12:30 – so just let us know on the form how many advisers will be attending.
