The American Conference Institute (ACI) hosts a comprehensive ERISA litigation conference twice a year, in New York in October and in Chicago in April. Fall in Manhattan and spring in Chicago. What’s not to like?
Beyond that though, the conferences have always provided a detailed and in-depth look at the hottest current topics in ERISA litigation, and I don’t say that just because I am speaking at the upcoming conference, in April, in Chicago. I also found this to be the case when I was attending in the past, in New York, as a member of the audience. Even most recently, at the 2014 conference in New York, where I spoke as a member of the panel discussing ethical concerns in ERISA litigation, I took a great deal away from the other presentations I attended, including the always interesting judicial panels, in which sitting judges discuss litigation and ERISA topics that have caught their attention.
In April, ACI will hold its 9th National Forum on ERISA litigation in Chicago, where I will be speaking, along with three well-known ERISA litigators, on current topics in benefit litigation. If you are interested in attending, ACI offers a discount to attendees who are invited by the speakers, and I would like to make that offer available to all of you who do me the good favor of reading my posts. If you would like to take advantage of that offer, all you need to do is contact ACI’s Joe Gallagher at 212-352-3220 ext. 5511, before January 30th, and mention my name.
