  • Pension Action Center Summit to Fight Fraud 

Sponsored by Investor Protection Trust, and presented with the Massachusetts Securities Division, the Pension Action Center will host an in-person convening on fraud prevention on Tuesday, March 19th, 2024.

Hosted in the UMass Ballroom space from 9am-3pm, with programming starting at 10am after a breakfast welcome reception, we will gather a group of experts in this field: guest speakers and panelists including several Q & A sessions. We aim to have presenters from community law enforcement, AARP MA, the Banker’s Association, state officials, in addition to other stakeholders and experts in this space.

Programming will likely include the following:  Secretary of State Galvin, Mike Festa from AARP MA, Anna-Marie Tabor from UMass Boston, Rachel Webber NWDA, as well as Undersecretary Layla D’Emilia.  This will be a hybrid event, live streamed for those who can’t join in person on the day.
