Tuesday 9 April 2024 and Wednesday 10 April 2024 – conferencing at the Cape Town International Convention Centre

The Pension Lawyers Association (“PLA”) are delighted to invite you to register to attend the 28th PLA annual conference to be held on Tuesday, 9 and Wednesday, 10 April 2024 at the Cape Town International Convention Centre

We invite you to take advantage of early bird registration for the conference, which ends on Wednesday, 31 January 2024. The full conference fees will apply to registrations after that date.


As always, much thought has gone into producing a conference which is thought-provoking and challenging and which offers high quality analysis, but always with a view to its practical application. Our knowledgeable speakers will provide you with expert legal and practical analysis and discussions on topical legal issues affecting the financial services and retirement funds industry. In addition, we will bring you up to date on relevant judgments and decisions, including from the courts and the Adjudicator. The programme and speakers are currently being finalised and will be shared early next year.  We are honoured to have Ms Himanshi Jain, Senior Social Protection Specialist from the World Bank, Ms Astrid Ludin, Deputy Commissioner at the FSCA, and Adv Muvhango Lukhaimane, the Pension Funds Adjudicator, as confirmed speakers for our conference.

Who should attend:

All pension lawyers, attorneys, advocates, retirement fund boards of management, fund officers, consultants, actuaries, administrators and other interested persons are invited to attend this professional conference.
