Nixon Peabody’s Higher Education team invites you to an informative series of webinars discussing hot topics, trends and issues disrupting higher education in 2019. Campus closures, NCAA enforcement, clinical research and trials, technology transfer, Title IX and internal investigations are a few of the topics we will cover.

This session will address the Multiple Employer Plans (MEPs) that have increasingly garnered the interest of sponsors of defined contribution plans (e.g., 403(b), 401(a), etc.) in the educational marketplace. Over the course of 60 minutes and through both legal and fiduciary lenses, representatives of Nixon Peabody LLP and Fiduciary Investment Advisors (FIA) will walk attendees through a brief history of MEPs, current regulatory guidance and those items they should think about when considering a MEP for their institutions. At the presentation’s conclusion, webinar attendees will be armed with the following:

  • Current legal guidance
  • Considerations including:
    • The logistics of establishing a MEP
    • Matters of plan design
    • Cost information
    • The fiduciary responsibility landscape
    • The ins-and-outs of plan administration
    • Employee engagement issues
