Leading the Topics for the 2018 NAPA 401(k) Summit Agenda Is…

More than 2,000 votes have already been cast – and the leading topic wasn’t even on the list a week ago.

On Monday, we opened up voting on topics for the 2018 NAPA 401(k) Summit Agenda. We started out with a great list – but NAPA-Net readers have already added a dozen potential topics for consideration.

And, as things stand now, the topic at the top of our unique voting tool tally is … (drumroll) …

  • Enhancing profitability in a fee-compressed world

Other topics in the top 10 at present are:

  • Getting smarter about how sponsors need to think about their benefit budget
  • Disruptive forces in the retirement space
  • Serving the small plan space effectively
  • Showing added value in the RFP process
  • Process for determining a reasonable fee/benchmarking, building your service agreement
  • Working with TPAs for creative plan design
  • 409A/Non-Qualified Deferred Compensation plan insights
  • Drawing “Room?” – integrating a decumulation focus into your accumulation practice
  • Cash Balance plans as a growth strategy

The list is a living thing – it works like a topics “cage match” of sorts. You’re presented with two different session topics – they rotate – all you have to do is pick your favorite or add your own idea for others to vote on. Then you’ll get two more choices – vote or add one of your own. If you don’t like either of the suggestions (though that’s not likely) – there’s even an option for that. Every time you suggest an idea, it’s added to the pool of ideas that others vote on.

You can vote as often as you’d like – and we’ll keep you posted as to which topic(s) are leading, as we near the opening of registration for the 2018 NAPA 401(k) Summit.

Haven’t weighed in yet? There’s still time. Already voted? There are probably some new topics in the tool that you haven’t seen. Regardless – come check it out. And vote.
