Self-directed Retirement Industry Conference in DC

Just returned from one of the best RITA conferences to date. The feedback has been tremendous.  A special thank you to our speakers. They delivered exceptional content and provided great value to the attendees. And a special thanks to our sponsors! Stay tuned for more comments and testimonials.

Dear Robyn & Mary,
Enjoyed meeting you and benefiting from your work. The RITA conference was great.  Not being in the trust business I found it very informative about self-directed IRA custodian industry.  The last time I was exposed to RITA was over 8 years ago when I attended three successive meetings.  Such an improvement! Everything about the conference was so much better than my prior experiences.

Sincerely yours,
