    Who Should Attend?

    Everyone involved in IRAs at your financial institution, including new account representatives, certificate of deposit personnel, savings counselors, accountholder service representatives, and investment and trust personnel who are involved in the opening, selling, marketing, and/or administration of IRAs. Additionally, any compliance officers and other officers/managers who oversee IRA operations and may be responsible for troubleshooting IRA owners’ questions and/or concerns. This is also a fitting refresher for experienced IRA personnel who like a slower paced format to cover all the new changes in a comprehensive manner.
