FINAL 2023 Symposium Introduction Slides

What is Our Employee Benefits Symposium?

For over 15 years, we've been pushing boundaries in the employee benefits space, and we're excited to announce that our 17th Annual Employee Benefits Symposium is coming up in the fall.

This event is the perfect chance to connect with like-minded professionals, hear from expert speakers, and get inspired by motivational breakout sessions. We've come a long way since our first small gathering, and this event attracts top non-profit associations and organizations, professional services firms, and mid-sized retirement plan sponsors in the DMV area and beyond. 

We'd love for you to participate. So mark your calendar for this awesome opportunity.
