Summer is here and brings longer days, shorter nights with warm enough weather to enjoy a good swim after work. However, summer also begins the countdown to our annual conference which as our new National Save for Retirement Week logo states…It’s Closer Than You Think! Yes in three short months the Surf will be up in sunny San Diego California, where NAGDCA will host our 32nd Annual Conference.
If you have not registered for the conference the early bird special ends August 20 and the hotel block will remain open until August 31, however it is filling up quickly! Also, if you are interested in donating items for the silent auction that will take place at the conference this year, those items are due August 31, 2012.
A quick reminder that NAGDCA Executive Board elections opened on June 18th for two member at large positions. Voting will close July 20, 2012. Applications are still being accepted for the Secretary/Treasurer position. Serving on the NAGDCA and ANC Board is a very worthwhile opportunity to get involved in Defined Contribution Administration at the national level while learning more than you could ever imagine.
A huge thank you to the National Save for Retirement Week committee for inviting me to record a video promoting National Save for Retirement Week which can be viewed here. In addition, we also recorded a video promoting this year’s conference! Please share these links with anyone who is considering attending the conference or participating in National Save for Retirement Week, after all, “It’s Closer Than You Think”.
It has been a pleasure serving as your President this year. I hope to see and speak to each of you personally at the conference September 29 – October 3, 2012.
