Pursuit of Continued Plan Sponsor Education
NAGDCA believes in the continued pursuit of plan sponsor education and training as essential factors in creating better outcomes for public sector employees. We constantly strive to explore the newest and most relevant ideas in the defined contribution industry, and all of our content is carefully designed to challenge both the newest sponsor and the most seasoned veteran. We offer continuing education credit through our conference for several different certifications, and our student program is a unique way to engage talents college students who may be interested in a career in the retirement industry.
Student Mentor Program
The foundation of strong plan sponsors and industry representatives starts with clear guidance from experienced professionals. We invite students interested in both public sector plan sponsorship and the financial industry to join our annual conference where they can work with seasoned veterans in both fields. At the 2018 Annual Conference, 35 university students participated in NAGDCA’s Student Mentoring Program and were matched with professionals from the private and public sector of defined contribution administration. During the conference, these students worked with their mentors to network with fellow attendees and were encouraged to ask questions concerning the defined contribution/deferred compensation field. Students are also encouraged to contact their mentors as a future resource. Interested students also receive complimentary NAGDCA membership.

In 2018, NAGDCA/ANC provided stipends to six Quiz Bowl teams and awarded a total of seven academic scholarships. Six other students received all-expense paid travel and accommodations for the NAGDCA Annual Conference.
