The speaker for this event is Ed Gaelick, owner of PSI Consultants, LLC, of Glen Rock.

Ed will highlight the plans and strategies necessary to create certainty should unknown risks show up. The presentation will include information on protecting income in the event of a disability; the need for appropriate medical, dental, and vision coverage; how hiring employees affects the insurance needs of a business; and alternatives to traditional retirement planning.
