2015 Innovator Awards - Call for Nominations

Pensions & Investments and the Defined Contribution Institutional Investment Association are once again co-sponsoring an award for innovation by defined contribution plans and their executives.

We want to recognize those ahead of the herd, those making new and unusual changes designed to improve participants' retirement income security.

Maybe you would be the ideal nominee. Or maybe you know of someone else who has done something innovative. Please help ensure that these innovations are nominated, so others can learn from them.

Winners of the third annual awards will be announced at Pensions & Investments' 2015 West Coast Defined Contribution conference, to be held Oct. 18-20 in San Francisco.

If you are nominating someone else, you must provide a signed confirmation that the nominee is aware you are nominating him or her and would like to be considered.

Nomination deadline: May 16, 2015. There is no fee to enter.
