Don’t go home yet! The closing event is something not to be missed. Our two distinguished hosts will entertain you as your fellow attendees play our version of America’s favorite game show. Sitting on the most comfortable couches (or in this case, hotel chairs), watch as two teams battle in 4 retirement games with prizes and most importantly – bragging rights at stake! Who will win is anyone’s guess but the PSCA signature cocktail will help everyone to get through this fun and entertaining event. Finish the conference with laughter at the PSCA Retirement Game Night!
