What Happens In Vegas…

What are you waiting for?

So, have you registered for the NAPA 401(k) Summit? Hundreds already have. What about you?

I know it’s still a ways off (though April will be here before you know it). Maybe you’re waiting till after the holidays (it won’t be any cheaper). Maybe you don’t care about the convenience of being at the host hotel? Or maybe you’re just one of those who winds up putting things off till the very last minute (I feel your “pain”). One thing I’m sure of – if you’re serious about working with retirement plans – it’s only a matter of time until you do…or risk spending the rest of the year hearing from those who did about the amazing event you missed.

So why should you commit NOW to the NAPA 401(k) Summit?

First off, by now you know that this is the only retirement plan advisor conference developed by plan advisors for plan advisors. The proof of that is, quite literally, in the program that has been developed – for you. This year, as in years past, the steering committee (98% are advisors) has been hard at work for months, developing the program, fleshing out the agenda, lining up speakers, and assigning session “owners” to make sure that you get maximum bang for your buck in terms of information, interaction, and session quality.

Are you worried about helping your clients through a DOL audit? We’ve got you covered. Not sure how to best set a reasonable fee for your services? No problem. Want to incorporate HSAs into your focus? Check. Thinking about selling – or merging – your practice? Expanding your team? Benchmarking? We’ve got your back. Worried about litigation? Cybersecurity? Check, check. No “pay to play” — just the most timely topics, the best speakers, the most dynamic sessions. And nobody, and I mean nobody, brings “the Hill” to the Summit like NAPA!

Secondly, if you’re focused on networking, Summit “After Dark” has literally transformed the concept into a true advisor “experience.” If you’ve been there, you know what I mean. If you haven’t, trust me, you don’t know what you’re missing (though doubtless you’ve heard).

What’s (Really) Different

Beyond all those important reasons, there are two other major considerations in attending this year’s NAPA 401(k) Summit. There is the critical issue of legislative and regulatory reform. The mid-terms have shifted the balance of power – and believe it or not, the prospects for retirement reform might have just improved. What remains to be seen is if the outcome will be positive. And that doesn’t take into account what might emerge on the regulatory side from the Labor Department, the SEC, or both. Regardless – you will want – and need – to know what is afoot, and there is no better place for you to do that than the NAPA 401(k) Summit.

But among all the things that really (really) set the NAPA 401(k) Summit apart – one thing stands out, this year more than most. Quite simply, it is that – and unlike EVERY other advisor conference out there – your NAPA 401(k) Summit registration helps support the activities of NAPA – YOUR advocacy, information and education organization – not the bottom line of some corporate media organization or private equity firm.

That’s right – in addition to the insights, information, networking that you may get at some other events, your attendance at the NAPA 401(k) Summit is, and remains, a unique investment in your future – and the future of your profession.

It is, quite simply, a great way – perhaps the best way – to put your money where your mouth is.

So, go ahead – register for the NAPA 401(k) Summit. Today. While you’re thinking about it. Now. You’ll be glad you did.

Because, this time, anyway – what happens in Vegas won’t stay there…

See you in Vegas!
