2019 Signature Award Finalists Announced


CHICAGO, IL, March 28, 2019 -- The Plan Sponsor Council of America (PSCA), part of the American Retirement Association (ARA), today announced the finalists for its 2019 Signature Awards competition. Award winners will be honored at a special presentation at PSCA's Annual National Conference, April 30-May 1 in Tampa, Florida.

It takes commitment and creativity to cut through the clutter with messages that can have an impact," notes Jack Towarnicky, executive director of PSCA. "We are pleased to be able to acknowledge the efforts of these dedicated professionals and the organizations that support them in this crucial area."
