2023 Policy Innovation Forum
Wednesday, October 25, 2023
500 1st Street, NW, 9th floor conference center
On October 25, 2023, the CRI will host its annual invitation-only 2023 Policy Innovation Forum. We are excited to host this event at the CRI’s Georgetown University’s Capitol Hill offices and conference center at 500 1st Street NW, Washington, DC. The CRI also will host an evening reception for guests on Tuesday, October 24, 2023.
This year’s Forum will look ahead to 2024 and the 50th anniversary of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA). What have been some of ERISA’ s most significant accomplishments and what have been some unintended consequences? How well has our nation’s retirement policy kept pace with innovation? As we look to the future, is there a need to reexamine the legal and regulatory framework of our nation’s retirement system — and should we start with an ERISA 2.0?
Sponsorships will be available. For more information, contact Angela Antonelli, Executive Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org with 2023 Policy Forum in the subject line.
Registration for invited guests will open one month in advance in September 2023.
