DCIIA holds four major events during the year along with additional regional ad hoc gatherings. 

The Academic Forum is a unique event that brings together leading academics and innovative plan sponsors and practitioners for a series of panels on how to improve outcomes in defined contribution plans.

The Public Policy Forum is brings together industry leaders with policy makers and other thought leaders to discuss ways to improve the retirement security of  American workers through the retirement savings system. The Forum is a key program in support of DCIIA’s mission and core beliefs to expand access to the current retirement savings system and improve retirement outcomes for American workers.  

The Membership Board Meeting combines our annual business meeting, where we appoint officers and committee leaders for the 2014 term, with educational sessions led by plan sponsors and DCIIA members who are leading various projects and initiatives. One DCIIA voting Board Member and one observer are invited to attend from each member firm. We strive for 100% participation so all member organizations have representation at this important event. 

The Investment Forum provides a venue for DC industry thought leaders to discuss and debate investments within a DC framework. The Forum addresses topics that are relevant to DCIIA’s mission, and complement DCIIA’s existing programming.
