DEFINED CONTRIBUTION

Registration deadline extended for Excellence and Innovation awards

The deadline for entering Pensions & Investments' 2017 Excellence and Innovation awards program has been extended until June 9.

Co-sponsored by the Defined Contribution Institutional Investment Association, the awards aim to recognize DC plan executives and employers for well-executed, creative and unusual projects that ensure participants have adequate retirement income.

Central to the awards are plan improvements that not only advance retirement outcomes in a particular plan but also introduce ideas that potentially reverberate elsewhere in the industry. Awards for excellence recognize that good retirement outcomes result from outstanding execution, as well as innovation in design.

The awards will be presented Oct. 9 at P&I's annual West Coast Defined Contribution Conference in San Diego.
