Retirement Coaches Association 2021 Conference

Four retirement experts were honored during the annual awards night of the Fifth Annual Retirement Coaches Association Conference on September 22, 2021. Dr. Dorian Mintzer, Pete Finlon, Larry Jacobson, and Joanne Waldman each received the coveted Retirement Catalyst Award.  This honor recognizes industry change agents and impactful contributors to the Retirement Coaching industry.  At the same ceremony, Dr. Joseph Coughlin received the  coveted Retirement Pioneer Award for this work at the MIT Age Lab.

Dr. Mintzer is a founding member of the Retirement Coaches Association, a contributing author of several books published by the association, and the co-creator of The Certified Professional Retirement Coach Designation and training program.  Mintzer said of receiving the award, "I am honored to receive this award with the other winners, as we all work to expand the awareness of the importance of retirement transition and longevity planning."

Robert Laura founded both the association and retirement coach training program in 2017 with one simple mission: to improve the field of retirement planning by helping people develop a plan for the non-financial aspects of life after work.  He believes the current model is insufficient because it focuses primarily on money instead of helping people replace their work identity, fill their time, stay relevant and connected, and be mentally and physically active.

"Working in tandem with financial advisors, employers, psychologists, faith leaders, and human resource directors, our goal is to make sure people don't waste some of their best years struggling to figure out their new options and choices on their own," says Laura.
