Today, PLANSPONSOR has opened the nominating process for the annual PLANSPONSOR Plan Sponsor of the Year and Retirement Plan Adviser of the Year awards.
Nominations for each award are officially open! As we have in the past years, PLANSPONSOR is soliciting your help in identifying qualified candidates for each award.
If you work with or for, or know of, a great plan sponsor, plan adviser or plan adviser team, please help us recognize the best in the business.
Recipients for Plan Sponsor of the Year Awards will be featured in the March 2017 issue of PLANSPONSOR and the Retirement Plan Advisers of the Year will be featured in the March-April issue of PLANADVISER.
Award recipients across all categories will be honored at the PLANSPONSOR/PLANADVISER annual Awards for Excellence celebration in New York City on March 30, 2017.
For plan sponsors, nominations may be made by providers, advisers, consultants, actuaries, attorneys, third-party administrators, employees and colleagues, or, you can even nominate yourself. The award is given in many categories to recognize all plan types, so any plan sponsor can be eligible. The nomination form is available here.
Nominations for the Retirement Plan Adviser of the Year awards, now given in four categories based on practice and team size, may be made by plan sponsor clients, employers, brokers/dealers of eligible advisers, as well as from working partners of these advisers, such as investment vendors, accountants, attorneys and plan administrators. However, self-nominations are not permitted. The nomination form is available here.
The deadline for the 2017 Plan Adviser and Adviser Team of the Year award is October 14, while the deadline for the Plan Sponsor of the Year award is November 4.
