Goldberg, a former chairman (1996–98) of the PFP executive committee, also was chairman (1989–91) of the PFP legislation and regulation subcommittee and is a regional director at Bernstein Investment Research in Houston.

Its resources include an online discussion forum, a financial planning library, news, practice guides and two Web pages exclusively for PFS credential holders and members of the PFP section, respectively.
