As a plan sponsor, it is important to stay up-to-date on the employee benefit industry. It is ever-changing, and new laws and regulations can have a huge impact on your company and its employees. Having the right resources and expert advice available to you is critical.
We recommend you choose to attend at least one of these conferences this year to stay current – and if you choose to attend the AICPA Conference or the Western Pension & Benefits conference in Las Vegas, we’d love to meet up with you at the conference or take you to a favorite locals restaurant while you’re in town.
