Dan Kline and Marvin Brinkman have received the newly developed Chartered Special Needs Consultant (ChSNC)* designation. Kline and Brinkman are financial services professionals with Continuum Financial, a general agency of the Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance Company (MassMutual).

Financial professionals who achieve the ChSNC will have completed 120 hours of course study at the American College over three courses developed by recognized experts in the field.
