Kelly Named as Delegate to NAPA DC Fly-In Forum

A Detailed Plan Makes

Every Dream Possible

Greensboro, NC —Kathleen Kelly of Compass Financial Partners recently participated as a delegate to the National Association of Plan Advisors’ (NAPA) Annual DC Fly-In Forum, an exclusive gathering of the nation’s leading retirement plan advisors.

Delegates to the NAPA DC Fly-In Forum converged in the nation’s capital to listen to and brief top congressional leaders about the impact and importance of the nation’s workplace retirement plans, and, as advocates for the employers and participants they work with, shared how proposed laws and regulations might impact American workers’ retirement security. Ms. Kelly, a member of NAPA, was one of approximately 200 delegates selected to participate in the sixth annual NAPA DC Fly-In Forum July 24-25. 

This year NAPA DC Fly-In Forum delegates heard from Congressman Richie Neal (D-Massachusetts), and Senator Todd Young (R-Indiana), both of which have recently introduced legislation that would impact retirement plans, as well as Assistant Secretary of Labor Preston Rutledge and Securities and Exchange Commissioner Hester Peirce, key figures in recent developments regarding considerations regarding a fiduciary standard.  Panel discussions with key Hill staffers shed light on prospects for legislative reforms, and delegates also gained insights on litigation trends and new retirement policy proposals, followed by a dinner keynote address featuring a perspective on the mid-term elections from CNN Chief National Correspondent John King.

On the second day of the forum, delegates met one-on-one with their respective congressional representatives on Capitol Hill to share insights from the experiences they have on a daily basis with business owners and plan participants – and to provide perspectives on proposed and current legislation.
