February 13, 2023

The Retirement Industry Trust Association (RITA) will host its spring conference for self-directed retirement professionals from April 24-25, 2023 in Washington, D.C.

The theme will be “Mapping the Future of Self-Directed IRAs” and focus on how the latest legislation and regulatory changes will impact the industry.

“SECURE 2.0 established several new provisions impacting IRAs,” said Mary Mohr, Executive Director of RITA. “We have been working closely with our attorneys to unpack these changes and what they mean for the industry. We want to educate others on what to expect and how to navigate the best way forward.”

RITA’s conferences provide the latest legislative and regulatory updates from leading experts and government officials. Past conference topics have also included cybersecurity, fraud prevention, updates from the Department of Labor and Internal Revenue Service, and more.

“Attending RITA’s conferences is a must for retirement industry professionals,” said Jeff Worley, Sr. Vice President of GoldStar Trust Company. “The value received from interacting with others in the industry and discussing current topics, challenges, and issues is immeasurable. The knowledgeable speakers have always been on point and relevant to the constantly changing retirement landscape that we all are trying to successfully navigate.”

The RITA Spring Conference will include two full days of speakers, panels, and roundtable sessions. It will be hosted at The Royal Sonesta in Dupont Circle, which offers an outdoor pool, onsite dining, and flexible meeting space. The hotel is located within minutes of the White House, Kennedy Center, National Zoo, and key DC monuments. Attendees living more than 50 miles away should book accommodations in RITA’s room block at The Royal Sonesta by March 29, 2023.
