26th Annual Conference and Membership Meeting Update
June 15, 2018

The 26th Annual Conference and Membership meeting is only six weeks away! Register before June 26 to take advantage of early registration and the room block at the University Club of D.C.

Agenda SpotlightWith the industry increasingly adopting registered investment advisory service models, this year’s conference will emphasize the obligations of fiduciaries. Professor Arthur Laby, a nationally recognized fiduciary expert and co-director of the Rutgers Center for Corporate Law and Governance, will provide two sessions on the duties of a fiduciary to put his clients’ interests before his own as well as due care with respect investment recommendations. Professor Laby, a former assistant general Counsel for the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, is a magna cum laude graduate of the Boston University School of Law where he was an editor of the Law Review and a former Fulbright scholar.

Event Spotlight: This year's Guest/Spouse tour, hosted by Debby Krasner and Eunice Salton, will visit the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery to view the Presidents in a private docent tour at 11:00a.m. Saturday. As the nation's only complete collection of presidential portraits outside the White House, the "America's Presidents" exhibition lies at the heart of the Portrait Gallery's mission to tell the country's history through the individuals who have shaped it. The National Portrait Gallery was authorized and founded by Congress in 1962 with the mission to acquire and display portraits of "men and women who have made significant contributions to the history, development, and culture of the people of the United States." Today, the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery continues to narrate the multi-faceted and ever-changing story of America. The tour will be followed by lunch at The Smith!

We hope you will join us!
