There are now only a few weeks left to register for the PP Trustee Masterclass 2014, which will be be held in London on 30 September.
The one-day conference - free to attend for trustees - will look at how trustees can get the best out of their advisers and explore topics including trustee liability and public relations.
It will also look at closed scheme conundrums and covenant management - and also include a panel on supporting the trustee role, which will look at methods of recruiting trustees and how to balance the skillsets of a trustee board.
In addition, our panel of pension prophets - Robin Ellison, Malcolm McLean, Roger Mattingly and Peter Askins - will discuss the challenges facing trustees including the fallout from the 2014 Budget; the potential for further changes to tax relief; and what they believe should be on the politicians' agenda in the run-up to the 2015 General Election.
The conference will be held at Le Méridien, Picadilly in London on 30 September.
