I doubt they'll grow. Personally, I think the organization is in a death spiral. Think about it: 69% of students who are interested in the field have walked away from the CFP as a designation. If I am wrong, and by some offhand chance they do grow, then the extra money will come in handy paying that CFP couple in Florida - and who knows how many other CFPs will join or continue to sue the CFP Board.
