Washington Metropolitan Chapter
Please click "Events" above to register for an upcoming meeting.
Welcome to our chapter home page! Programs presented by the Washington Metro Chapter of WEB feature an interactive panel of benefits professionals (from large and small employers, law firms, providers, and consulting firms), who each bring a different perspective on important, practical issues faced by today's benefits community.
Most programs in 2013 will be scheduled for the fourth Thursday of the month. Mark your calendars! We alternate between breakfast meetings and lunch meetings. Some of our programs will be "informal" and will be brown-bag luncheons; others will be "formal" meetings which are catered. Our programs are held at various venues around the metropolitan area. There are always great opportunities for networking. You will be able to access the registration form for our most current meeting by clicking "Events" above.
