The DC Institute membership model is designed to put plan sponsors’ needs first and foremost, with an agenda unconstrained by anything other than the mandate to provide a forum for the dissemination of the forward-most thought leadership and discussion of the ideas. The membership’s mission is to help plan sponsors do their jobs so that they can better meet the needs of their participants.
Institute for Defined Contribution was created to serve DC plan sponsors, and we rely upon an Advisory Board of plan sponsors to help conceptualize and guide each event’s agenda. We sincerely thank this year’s Advisory Board as well as everyone who has provided — and will continue to provide — input to ensure that the topics we are addressing are current, practical, and pertinent.
