San Diego, CA – Southern California Institute’s Laureate Center For Wealth Advisors is holding its 2018 Gathering at The Westin – Gaslamp on February 22nd – 23rd. The annual Gathering has become a highly anticipated event for San Diego wealth advisors and affiliated professionals.

Senior estate planning attorney and managing partner, Joe Strazzeri invites wealth advisors to join them at the 14th annual Gathering for two days of shared insights, education, and collegiality. The Gathering is an annual event for all advisors in Estate, Business, and Wealth Strategies Planning.

When asked about their popular annual event, Strazzeri said, “When we gather and work together we can, through collegiality and collaboration, provide the leadership our clients are seeking to offer clarity and direction for their planning needs.”

The presenters are each expert in their field who enjoy sharing and who give of themselves and their time. Their unique skills, wisdom, and judgement are truly invaluable. With this Thought Leader Community as a resource, attendees don’t have to master the answer to every client quandary. Instead they become courageously armed with the right questions and resources. This “We-driven” mindset is transformational for attendees, their practice, and their clients.
