This week KPAs and other 401(k) industry insiders are gathering in our nation's capital.
Tomorrow Brian Graff
and his NAPA
(National Association of Plan Advisors) will kick off
their 2017 NAPA D.C. Fly-In Forum
, bringing 401(k) plan advisors (KPAs) and their allies to Washington, D.C. The two-day event, which will be held at the Washington Court Hotel, has the theme "Engage" and is all about connecting KPAs with regulators, legislators and their staff, and other Washington insiders, so that those KPAs can gain insight and make their voices heard.
