SLF 2018 Planning Underway: Back to the Future

Jim Fitzpatrick, President, NICSA

If you haven’t heard, NICSA is getting back to its roots this winter. The 2018 Strategic Leadership Forum will take place at the Doral Miami from February 28 to Mar 2. The agenda planning is well under way and a terrific program full of rich, value-added content is taking shape. The location will be familiar to many, but NICSA is looking to the future as we expand our reach and enhance our content in order to create a productive learning and meeting experience for our members.

What can the 2018 SLF deliver to its membership? Jim Fitzpatrick, President of NICSA, weighs in.

Jim: Planning the SLF is one of the most important efforts of the association and I am extremely thankful to work with a group of talented industry leaders to help shape the content of this educational event. I am pleased to announce that Larry Fahey, Vice President and Director of Corporate Operations at Eaton Vance and Lynette Turner, Managing Director at BNY Mellon Asset Servicing have been selected as the Co-Chairs for the 2018 Strategic Leadership Forum Committee. They are extremely qualified to oversee the development of a stellar program and help guide our committee in the coming months.

The mission of NICSA is to deliver the highest quality educational content and to provide the tools to support engagement and collaboration on a wide variety of industry topics. And, we’re well on our way. So far, we have the first female Tomcat Pilot Carey Lohrenz, Morningstar CEO Kunal Kapoor, and Great-West Financial and Putnam Investments CEO Bob Reynolds lined up to address the NICSA membership in March. Look for additional speaker announcements in the coming weeks as we finalize our panels and keynote presentations.

NICSA is committed to bringing together a diverse and experienced audience, which in turn makes for optimal collaboration, networking and idea sharing. We’re expecting many of the industry’s top asset managers and have taken meaningful steps to broaden our reach into the distribution, product and broker-dealer segments of the industry.

I encourage all industry participants to embrace opportunities to Learn, Discuss and Develop at our 2018 Strategic Leadership Forum this coming March. Please make plans to attend and to actively engage with both the individuals and companies who are building best practices within our industry. And, we’ll do our part to build two days of premium educational programming that you can take back to your organizations. See you in Miami! Click here to register today.
