Join DCIIA and the SPARK Institute for our
2020 Public Policy Events!

Domestic Public Policy Forum and Diversity & Inclusion Awards Dinner Global Public Policy Forum
April 29-30, 2020 | Washington, DC June 23-24, 2020 | Washington, DC

For 10 years, DCIIA’s Public Policy Forum has brought together industry leaders with policymakers and other stakeholders to discuss ways to improve the retirement security of America's workers. This year we’re thrilled to partner with the SPARK Institute for this signature event, where we’ll dive into the legal, regulatory and legislative topics that are top-of-mind for plan sponsors, investment managers, consultants and advisors, recordkeepers, law firms, and key players in the defined contribution retirement system.

We are also excited to celebrate DCIIA's Diversity & Inclusion Awards at a special dinner on April 29th where we will be recognizing members' Rising Star and Leader nominees.

A new landscape of defined contribution workplace savings plans is rising around the world. To learn, share ideas and engage, consider attending this summer’s first-ever joint global public policy conference, co-hosted by SPARK Institute and DCIIA. The conference will examine critical trends in global defined contribution workplace investment plans, with a view to evolving global best practices. Featured conferees include elected government officials, policy experts, academics and practitioners from across the spectrum of recordkeeping, asset management, personal wealth management and financial technologies.

Plan sponsors may attend the Forum on April 30th at no charge -- please contact us for registration details.
