“We’re thrilled to announce that Groom Law Group will now be NAGDCA’s legislative affairs advocate,” said NAGDCA Executive Director Matt Petersen. “A key component of NAGDCA’s value to our public plan sponsor members is working to achieve legislation that positively impacts the retirement security of their participants. We’re impressed with Groom Law Group’s collaborative approach, and confident that our members will be well served by the Group’s vast experience, extensive insight, and valuable relationships with political and regulatory leaders in the retirement arena.”

NAGDCA will be represented by:

  • Diana McDonald – Focuses on industry advocacy efforts, and legislative and regulatory developments.
  • Brigen Winters – Helps clients achieve compliance and obtain favorable outcomes through amendments from Congress and regulatory guidance from the IRS and Departments of Treasury, Labor, and Health and Human Services.

NAGDCA provides education, information, and training in all aspects of public plan administration to support members in creating plans that enable secure retirement outcomes for their participants. To encourage a grassroots movement for societal change around retirement, NAGDCA conceived and introduced National Retirement Security Week to Congress.
