The Hyphen Network took over the 2017 Summit with the support of NSIIP and will run subsequent Summits.

The National Society of Institutional Investment Professionals (NSIIP) is a nationwide, voluntary nonprofit educational organization. NSIIP promotes the exchange of information and education of institutional investment professionals. It advocates standards of qualification, develops and promotes continuing education programs and participates in any other way in the advancement of institutional investment professionals.

The annual Summit is the primary educational event held in the fall of the year. We typically have two key speakers that set the stage to address the current investment issues. The issues are then addressed by a number of panel discussions that focus on more detailed analysis and different approaches to the issues. In 2018 Hyphen Network will continue the tradition of the NSIIP by hosting The 24th Annual National Pension & Institutional Investment Summit in Dallas, Texas.
