Note: In light of the coronavirus pandemic all DCIIA events through June 2020 are now virtual. Please visit our Webinars and Virtual Communities pages for additional information.

Our educational events provide opportunities for members to network and learn from each other as well as hearing from thought leaders in academia, government, and non-profit organizations. Visit our online calendar for a list of upcoming DCIIA events and be sure to check out our Industry Events calendar as well.

We kick off each calendar year with the DCIIA Innovation Forum, which focuses on topics driving the future of our industry and features expert speakers from our member firms. The Membership Meeting, our annual member business meeting, coincides with the Innovation Forum. The location for this event changes each year.

The  DCIIA Public Policy Forum, held each April in Washington, DC, features policy makers, legislative and regulatory experts, and nonprofit leaders to discuss ways to improve the retirement security of America’s workers through the retirement savings system.

The  DCIIA Academic Forum brings together leading academics and industry practitioners for discussions about retirement-related research and improving outcomes in defined contribution plans. This Forum is held in the fall and the location changes each year.

DCIIA  Regional Events are opportunities for local networking and information sharing. Many thanks to our Regional Ambassadors for their support in conceptualizing, facilitating, and hosting regional events. 

DCIIA also hosts webinars that provide an opportunity to hear from thought leaders without having to leave the office.

Each year we co-sponsor the Excellence and Innovation Awards with Pensions & Investments. These awards highlight and celebrate plan sponsors that are leading the industry through their innovation and excellence.
