What is WEB?
We are committed to helping define the role of the benefits professional in the 21st century. As changing legislation, technology and market forces reshape the profession, products, and delivery systems, WEB will continue developing programs, educational opportunities, and services to help its members meet the challenges ahead. WEB provides a forum for benefit professionals to gather information and exchange ideas through educational programs, publications, and networking opportunities nationally and at local chapters.
WEB provides regularly-scheduled educational programs through its local chapters, as well as webinars, featuring government speakers, preeminent industry leaders, and key in-house benefits professionals. WEB also publishes a trade journal and provides access to, and discounts from, materials from other employee benefit organizations and publishers. Finally, WEB provides networking opportunities via chapter events and social networking.
