WPU students attend NAGDCA 2011 conference in Albuquerque

Financial planning majors Cindy Mota & Natalie Manzi were selected to represent WPU at the 2011 National Association of Government Defined Contribution Administrators (NAGDCA) conference in Albuquerque.  Cindy & Natalie were able to learn firsthand about the retirement industry from DC plan administrators as well as from retirement industry representatives from companies like Fidelity, ING, T. Rowe Price, ICMA-RC, Great West, BlackRock, and Nationwide.

The students met with NAGDCA leadership, as well as the head DC plan administrators from the states of New York, New Jersey, Delaware, and Arizona and the Assistant Secretary of Employee Benefits for the Dept of Labor.  They had 2 professional mentors to guide them at the conference, and they were also able to take a quick hot air balloon ride, take a quick tour of Albuquerque.
