Vahanian’s Bonnie Boyce has served as a Council Member since 2005 and continues to be an invaluable resource and leader to the council and Advisor Group community.

Jeffrey and Bonnie had the opportunity to connect with financial professionals and peers during breakout sessions and roundtable discussions. Keynote speakers included Peyton Manning, two-time Super Bowl winning Quarterback and Dr. Joe Coughlin, Leader of the MIT AgeLab.

This particular conference also included discussions on ESG investing.
