The ASPPA Benefits Council (ABC) of North Florida is a small group. We currently have approximately 25 active members. Despite our size, our membership includes representatives from a broad range of professionals, including accountants, TPAs, attorneys, investment advisors, consultants, actuaries and benefit analysts. If you reside in the North Florida area, we hope you will consider joining us. When we get together, we frequently find ourselves involved in interesting conversations that reflect a wide variety of topics and viewpoints, and new members are always warmly welcomed.
We generally meet quarterly in Jacksonville, FL, to enjoy a meal and a presentation on a timely topic. Over the past year we have enjoyed presentations from well known speakers, including S. Derrin Watson, J.D., SunGard, on the proper approach to correcting the most common plan mistakes; Robert M. Kaplan, CPC, QPA, ING, who provided an update on the 2009 ASPPA Annual Conference; Tim Hollinger, Principal Financial Group, with a presentation aimed at providing an understanding of the evolution and regulation of not for profit retirement plans; and Brian H. Graff, Esq., APM, ASPPA, with an eagerly anticipated Washington Update.
