We’re no strangers to hosting case studies showcasing the latest and greatest in DC plan ingenuity and showing what can be possible and executed in the real world. We’re also no strangers to aspirational discussions and debates among plan sponsors, managers, and consultants on what could be and what is yet to come in the industry so that we can improve everything from retirement readiness to financial wellness.
The DC Institute’s 17th Annual Half Moon Bay Symposium will present a convergence of the two sides of the formula and shepherd big ideas from thought to eventual reality. Join your fellow industry peers and experts in in-depth discussions on new ideas for the next generation of plans and learn the best ways to get to the proverbial finish line based on all the experience and expertise accumulated by the previous generation.
The Defined Contribution Institute was created to serve DC plan sponsors, and we rely upon an Advisory Board of plan sponsors to help conceptualize and guide each event’s agenda. We sincerely thank this year’s Advisory Board as well as everyone who has provided — and will continue to provide — input to ensure that the topics we are addressing are current, practical, and pertinent.
