2015 PLANSPONSOR National Conference

The Evolution of Retirement Plan Design
Adapting to the ever-changing landscape

Now in its 10th year, the PLANSPONSOR National Conference (PSNC) continues to deliver the most productive event that brings together legislative, legal and policy thought leaders with plan sponsors, retirement plan advisers and their providers. These three days of conversation address the current trends and best practices in investment options, successful employee education and engagement ideas, as well as cutting-edge plan design solutions.

This year’s conference will help you identify key priorities for retirement plan success and will cover topics relevant to plans of all sizes and across all areas of plan administration—whether Treasury or human resources (HR), investment or administrative committees.

In 2015, we are poised to deliver more peer-to-peer perspectives from a variety of plan sponsors willing to share their experiences of what has worked—or not—at their plans. Plan sponsor attendees can learn from their peers, and retirement plan advisers will gain valuable insight into their customers’ needs. And while the conference will continue to provide a strong focus on the challenges facing defined contribution (DC) plan sponsors, we have included a number of sessions that address defined benefit (DB) plan management and investing, health insurance cost concerns, nonqualified plan innovations and more.

By encompassing the entirety of the industry in its speakers and attendees, the PLANSPONSOR National Conference provides unrivaled insight and information that can be taken back to your office and used immediately to improve your business. We hope you can join us in Chicago this June.
