AALU/GAMA is preparing you for the future of the financial security profession with Beacon, a virtual experience that combines exclusive live and on-demand content, best-in-class professional development and networking to help you take your business—and your clients—to the next level.
What is Beacon?
During the past three months of turbulence, there has been a tectonic shift in consumer preference, economic realities, the political environment, and our reliance on technology. While the profession has taken the steps to address the short term or immediate impacts of these shifts, they will ultimately have lasting impacts on the way we do business.
As we ask ourselves, “How will the decisions we make today impact the future of our profession?” and “What do I need to do to position myself and my firm to be effective for current and future clients?”, the solution is clear … lead the way. Beacon, a virtual experience, was created to address these next sets of challenges head on as we move as a profession toward the “next normal. Kicking off on July 22 and concluding in September, Beacon will host the best and brightest leaders from the profession and provide a unique mix of on-demand and live content designed to help you lead the way.
Beacon will be delivered through two different methods:
1 | The Live Experience:
Live and interactive online events taking place July 22, August 26, and September 14-16. These live events bring together thousands of financial security professionals to connect, engage, and learn from one another. 2 | The On-Demand Experience: Our on-demand digital resource center features hundreds of pre-recorded sessions as well as recordings from the live sessions. Content will be released at different times throughout a three-month period. On-demand sessions will be available for viewing any time throughout the experience.
