Working together for better financial futures.

Created by the same people that provide digital and print content to inform plan sponsors of the latest trends and compliance issues, the annual PLANSPONSOR National Conference (PSNC) brings together a unique cross-section of the industry—plan sponsors, retirement plan advisers and providers, legislative and legal experts—as only an organization such as ours can do. On June 8 through 10, 2020, in beautiful Orlando, Florida, plan sponsors will receive insight and education that, as always, can help them build plans of excellence. Such plans improve the outcomes of the sponsor’s unique workforce while implementing proper corporate governance to manage fiduciary duties.

While earning continuing education credits, plan sponsors will hear what their peers are doing to address specific challenges—and get to join in discussing practical, creative solutions. And, plan advisers will get a multi-dimensional view of the challenges their clients face to inform better solutions.

All attendees will hear the latest as to:

  • trends and best practices;
  • ideas in retirement plan design;
  • investment options and solutions; and
  • legislative and regulatory changes.

Whether you are new as a retirement plan sponsor or have years’ experience—whether you work on the finance, treasury or human resource (HR) side of the plan—the 2020 PLANSPONSOR National Conference has something for you! Join us at the Ritz Carlton in Orlando, June 8 through 10!

Pre-Conference Workshops

HSA Essentials

Monday, June 8th, 2020 (Before the start of PSNC)

The HSA Essentials workshop is designed to educate plan sponsors currently offering, or considering offering, a plan, or advisers that want to be up-to-speed on these fast-growing benefit options. With their triple-tax-advantaged status and flexibility as both a short-term and long-term savings vehicle, HSAs are becoming part of not only the health benefits conversation, but retirement income.

This event is for plan sponsors and advisers. Please signify that you would like to participate on the registration page.
