Join the National Academy of Social Insurance for its 29th Annual Policy Research Conference, "Social Insurance: Opportunities and Challenges Facing the New Leadership and the American People," on January 25-26, 2017 in Washington, DC.
The conference will center on issues addressed in the Academy’s Report to the New Leadership and the American People on Social Insurance and Inequality. It will be the beginning of a year-long initiative to brief the new leadership on the economic security challenges facing the American people and opportunities to address these through social insurance. These opportunities will include both strengthening and/or modernizing existing programs – Social Security and Supplemental Security Income, Medicare and Medicaid, and Unemployment Insurance – and addressing significant risks not currently covered by our social insurance infrastructure – caregiving, long-term care and contingent work.
After an historic election season, the Academy’s conference and Report will offer a forum for fact-based, focused discussion of the challenges we need to address.
Panel sessions will explore:
As a conference participant, you’ll be among 400+ leading experts and stakeholders, including policy analysts and researchers, political scientists, economists, actuaries, students, journalists, Congressional staff, business and industry leaders, labor union representatives, program administrators, advocates, grassroots organization leaders, and more. Your participation will help the Academy underscore the importance of the adequacy and solvency of our social insurance programs for our nation’s future.
Since its inception in 1986, the Academy has hosted annual conferences that have offered visionary insights and rigorous inquiry into the functioning of our nation’s social insurance programs and how they can continue to meet the changing needs of American families, employees, and employers. Participants leave the conference with valuable takeaways, including the latest research findings in the various fields of social insurance, who’s who in the field, and which organizations are most engaged in these issues.
