While giving plan sponsors the flexibility of receiving information without having to leave the office, the seminars will

  • cover changes in retirement plan regulations,
  • provide updates on trends in the marketplace, and
  • create a forum for exploring plan options   

The seminars are facilitated by an interactive online presentation service, which combines phone and Internet technology.   Attendees may pose questions to the presenter either telephonically or via text messaging through the online service.
