Are you tired of the everyday grind? Looking for an opportunity to take a step back and re-energize yourself? Earn those final CE credits needed by attending the last of the only two live regional conferences offered during the 2018 continuing education reporting cycle. The ASPPA Cincinnati Regional Conference will be held Nov. 12-13, 2018 at the Northern Kentucky Convention Center — and it’s the 10th anniversary celebration!

Get inspired by the latest news from industry experts including Deirdre Bird, Gary Blachman, Keith Carlson, Ilene Ferenczy, Steve Forbes, Jayne Gaffney, Rich Hochman, Craig Hoffman, Bob Lavenberg, David Levine, Edward Clark Redder, Steve Riordan, Pete Swisher, Larry Vignola, Derrin Watson and Tom Zych.

You can expect to obtain valuable insight into what trends and concerns are getting the most attention in the industry. Glean information from your peers and explore best practices utilized to determine what’s worked well and what has not worked so well.

This conference offers a little bit of everything for all. Breakout sessions have returned to offer smaller more personalized group discussions. There will also be interactive sessions where attendees will have the opportunity to network with one another as well as a networking reception at the end of the first day. This is your time to step back and reflect upon the past year, be engaged by leading industry experts and ignite your passion about our industry and the effects we all have on assisting individuals to achieve their retirement goals.
