The first Summit was held on December 1, 1995 and the tradition of holding an annual Summit has continued since. The 25th annual Summit will be held in November 2019.

The National Society of Institutional Investment Professionals was created in 2005 to support the annual Summit and hosted the 2006 through the 2016 Summits.

In 2017 the Hyphen Network took over the Summit with the support of NSIIP and plans to continue the tradition of holding the annual 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 2017 Hyphen Network continued the NSIIP tradition of the Summit by hosting The Annual National Pension & Institutional Investment Summit in Dallas, Texas. The 2019 Summit will be the 25th Annual.
