coverntitledThe workshop instructors are associated with the DROP Advisory Council. Since 1986 they have helped thousands of employees save for retirement and exit the Florida Retirement System. This is a free educational workshop only. No financial or insurance products will be marketed and sold at the meeting. You are welcome to bring your spouse or friend. There are a limited number of seats for each workshop because it is a participatory workshop, and we want to make sure your questions are addressed. Please make your reservation as soon as possible.

The DROP Advisory Council members are independent financial professionals. They are highly skilled experts in the Florida retirement field. Today, only eight organizations in Florida have earned the right to be on this council.
