The Women in Retirement Conference (WiRC) is the only conference of its kind, with conference content built by women advisors and TPAs for women in the retirement plan industry. The purpose of the conference is to inspire women in the retirement plan industry to seek their highest level of personal and professional growth. Through in person and virtual events, WiRC uniquely brings together women across the industry to focus on four key areas: leadership, marketing, practice management, and personal growth.
In 2018 the American Retirement Association (ARA) consolidated two events, The ASPPA Women in Business Leaders Forum (WBLF) and NAPA Connect to create the Women in Retirement Conference (WiRC), by bringing together two distinct groups: women advisors and TPAs. In 2019, a third sister organization, NTSA, joined the WiRC network. In 2020, the conference was expanded to include virtual events that offer members of each of the ARA sister organizations a unique opportunity to connect and learn across disciplines and specialties.
