Fall 529 Conference to Offer Political Perspectives
Pittsford, New York (PRWEB) June 28, 2012
Over two dozen 529-plan experts from across the country have accepted invitations to present at Savingforcollege.com’s 529 Conference & Boot Camp to be held October 24-26, 2012 in New Orleans. Presenters include portfolio strategists, Washington lobbyists, state officials, association spokespersons, and consultants advising on investment strategies, legal and tax issues, and plan distribution.
Conference organizers anticipate strong attendance again this year, meeting or exceeding the record attendance of over 150 registrants at last year’s event.
“We typically schedule our annual 529 conference during the election season because of the significant impact that voting results can have on the future of 529 plans,” says Joseph Hurley, founder of Savingforcollege.com and conference co-organizer. “We are particularly excited about this year being a Presidential election year and gaining the perspective of several speakers with great familiarity over Washington’s inner workings.”
The corporate sponsors of this year’s 529 Conference and Boot Camp include Legg Mason, ING, Fidelity Investments, Columbia Management, iShares and BlackRock. The two and one-half day event takes place at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in New Orleans’ French Quarter.
