Abra Hovgaard, who has been an Edward Jones financial advisor in Hastings since 2004, attended the Edward Jones Managing Partner's Conference April 23 - 26 in Scottsdale, Ariz. The prestigious annual event honors the top 400 of the firm's more than 17,000 financial advisors.

The meeting pools Edward Jones' most successful financial advisors for a discussion with Penny Pennington, Edward Jones' managing partner, on issues facing the firm and the financial services industry as a whole.

This is the 6th time Abra has been invited to this event.
