The dawn of a new year inspires many to explore and embrace new opportunities for personal and professional development.

One great way to reinvest in yourself and in your business is to attend industry conferences. These events provide crucial industry updates and indispensable insights to help you better navigate an evolving business environment. And, like Michael Kitces articulates in “The 15 Best Conferences for Financial Advisors to Choose from in 2017, by attending conferences, “you are one good takeaway from a newfound understanding that can impact your business.”

So, step away from your desk to stretch your legs in another part of the country and invest in yourself in 2018. 

We are grateful for all that we learned and for everyone we met at the top wealth management conferences in 2017. We are excited for all that 2018 has to offer, and we hope to see you at future events! For the latest updates, visit our event calendar or follow us on Twitter
