    How will the deliberations and decisions in Washington impact the benefits world? Join us to find out.


    Back by popular demand, Jim Klein, President of the American Benefits Council, will provide the inside scoop on how political developments are likely to affect the future of the Total Rewards industry, benefits and compensation practices, as well as health and retirement policy.


    The American Benefits Council, a Washington, D.C.-based employee benefits public policy organization, advocates for employers, connecting public policy and private-sector solutions to shape employee benefits for the evolving global workforce.  The Council works closely with Congress, the White House, executive branch agencies and the courts to champion legislation, regulation and legal rulings favorable to its members’ needs, and to defend the employer-sponsored benefits system from proposals that would add burdens, liabilities and costs.


    Sign up early as this event fills up fast.  You won’t want to miss Jim’s balanced point of view and quick wit!
