As a member-driven organization, NAGDCA’s success is driven by the involvement of its volunteers. Nowhere is that more apparent than in the selfless impact of our committee members. Whether helping to plan the NAGDCA Annual Conference, recognizing innovative members with Leadership Awards, or promoting our Legislative Priorities, our committee members apply their expertise to making NAGDCA the most effective association of its kind.

Annual Conference Committee
The NAGDCA Annual Conference Committee is responsible for developing the premier event in the public sector defined contribution industry. From engaging speakers to national deep technical learning sessions to fun, interactive networking events, the NAGDCA Annual Conference has it all, and our volunteers plan each event from beginning to end under the guidance of some of the best event planners in the business.
The Audit Committee works to ensure NAGDCA’s regulation compliance and financial strength for the future.
NAGDCA’s members are constantly developing innovative solutions to public sector retirement challenges. The NAGDCA Annual Awards Committee has the challenge of finding the most brilliant and effective campaigns from across the country, and bringing them national attention. Through careful selection and engaged debate, our committee members determine who among their peers truly shines brightest.
The NAGDCA Industry Committee offers a unique opportunity for our private sector partners to use their skills to make an impact in the government defined contribution market. Each member is voted onto the committee by their peers to a six-year term, culminating in the role of Industry President. The Industry Committee is also responsible for planning the Industry Roundtable, and for representing the voice of our private sector members.
NAGDCA is the voice of state and local public plan sponsors at the federal level, and the NAGDCA Legislative Committee is responsible for ensuring our message reflects the needs of our members. Each year the committee works in concert with our Government Affairs Director to develop NAGDCA’s Legislative Priorities. Our priorities are then presented annually to regulators, members of Congress, and their staff, so that the voice of even our smallest member reaches key decision-makers to drive change.
Research and Content Advisory Committee
The Research and Content Advisory Committee provides NAGDCA staff with Plan Sponsor insight and knowledge to guide the association’s development of public sector defined contribution industry research, resources, and/or publications to ensure relevancy, accuracy, and efficacy.
