CHICAGO, IL, June 20, 2019 /24-7PressRelease/ — An exceptional panel of retirement association leaders will inspire and engage attendees at a unique event for women working with retirement plans.

In addition to an innovative agenda with content built by women advisors and third-party administrators (TPAs) for women, history will be made as women leaders across the five American Retirement Association (ARA) organizations will gather on one stage at the upcoming Women in Retirement Conference (WiRC). This exclusive American Retirement Association Women in Leadership Roundtable includes:

They will share how they have ascended in leadership, what keeps them up at night, how they started in the industry, and how they stay relevant and set themselves apart. In this 90-minute wide-ranging and interactive discussion, they will discuss:

• The impending wave of retirement dollars that will pay out or roll out of plans.
• The inevitable end of the bull market.
• How to monetize multiple employer plans (MEPs) and Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) for advisors and TPAs.
• The increasing gap between the “haves” and “have nots” in terms of retirement savings.
