The 2017 SMSF Association National Conference, held last week in Melbourne, received a record turnout of almost 1700 delegates, with 48 sessions presented by over 60 speakers.
SMSF Association CEO Andrea Slattery said the organisation always appreciated the importance of superannuation changes to delegates and the conference program was planned with this in mind.
“The fact we received overwhelming positive feedback from them on the depth of detailed, relevant content in a changing superannuation landscape was extremely gratifying, especially as they identified implementing these changes for clients as their greatest challenge.”
“The program boasted an enormous amount of targeted content and strategies to give advisors the tools and expertise to provide their clients with an exceptional service before 30 June. In particular, delegates embraced the workshops and an over-arching, family-based case study.”
The 2018 SMSF Association National Conference will be held in Sydney, roughly seven months after the bulk of the superannuation changes take effect.
“This will provide an opportunity to discuss strategies and assess how the changes are working,” Slattery said.
