On behalf of the Annual Conference Committee, I would like to take this opportunity to invite you to the 2015 NAGDCA Annual Conference being hosted in Indianapolis, IN! 
Indianapolis boasts a vibrant downtown, which was rated among the best downtowns in the United States by both Forbes and This year's conference will be held at the JW Marriott Indianapolis. The hotel is just steps away from the Indianapolis Zoo, beautiful White River State Park, museums, shopping, and dining. The hotel’s central location will allow conference attendees to make the most of their trip. 
This year's conference theme is ‘Rev Up Your Retirement.’ The conference will have many opportunities for continuing education and networking for NAGDCA members. Many of the session topics are ones that were proposed by members from survey responses, and include a blend of new topics as well as case studies from successful DC plans. The conference committee has worked hard to create an agenda that focuses on retirement readiness and I am very proud of the product they have produced! 
I am pleased to announce that this year's keynote speaker is Teresa Ghilarducci, author, labor economist, and nationally-recognized expert in retirement security.
