About the Cleveland Chapter of WEB
Programs presented by the Cleveland chapter of WEB feature an interactive panel of benefits professionals (from large and small employers, law firms, accounting firms, actuaries, service providers and consulting firms), who each bring a different perspective on important, practical issues faced by today's benefits leaders. The Cleveland chapter is the largest WEB chapter in the country. Opportunities for employee benefits professionals to exchange ideas and information through our educational programs and networking abound in the Cleveland chapter.
The Cleveland chapter of WEB generally meets on the third Thursday of the month from September through May. Occasionally, we meet on other days, though, so check the schedule.
Our morning programs begin with registration and continental breakfast and your first networking opportunity at 8:00 a.m. The presentation is from 8:30 - 9:30 a.m., with questions/answers from 9:30 - 9:45 a.m. For certain topics, we meet a little longer. Our September meeting on Fiduciaries and the Final Fee Disclosure Regulations will be 1&½ hours. Our Annual Legal and Regulatory Update in March and our joint meeting with the Health Action Council in April will each be two hours.
