Local financial planner attends conference

CRYSTAL LAKE – Joe Benedetti, a certified financial planner from 4 Oaks Wealth Management LLC, recently was invited to attend the 2013 LPL Financial Retirement Partners Annual Conference, an industry forum designed for LPL Financial advisers who are leaders in the retirement plan industry.

LPL Financial is the nation’s largest independent broker-dealer and a leading consultant on retirement plans and their advisers. Held in Colorado Springs, Colo., from Sept. 27-30, the invitation-only event brought together nearly 300 independent retirement-plan-focused advisers from around the country, making it one of the largest conferences of its kind in the industry, based on 2013 attendance figures.

Keynote speakers included former Yahoo! executive Tim Sanders, who is now a corporate consultant and the best-selling author of “Love Is the Killer App,” “The Likeability Factor” and “Saving the World at Work,” and special guest speaker Mike Eruzione, captain of the 1980 Winter Olympics “Miracle on Ice” U.S. national ice hockey team.  

“Attending RPAC was an outstanding opportunity to stay abreast of the latest industry developments and leading-edge ideas,” Benedetti said in a news release. “It was also extremely beneficial to share ideas with my peers from around the nation, in addition to attending a wide range of learning sessions dedicated to keeping our firm at the very forefront of our industry in all aspects of serving our retirement plan sponsor clients and their plan participants.”
