We have a very interesting agenda planned including:
The final agenda will also include priority topics for discussion suggested by member companies. Please let us know issues you would like to so they can be included in the information sent to attendees in advance of the meeting.
Please Note: We have scheduled the meeting for 9:30am to 2:30pm and have chosen the DFW Airport hotel location to make it easier for many participants around the country to fly in-and-out the same day. However, for those arriving the prior evening (Thursday, Sept. 15th) we will host a dinner and hope you can join us.
If you believe there is another colleague within your company/organization best suited to participate in this committee please let us know and share this invitation with that person.
For further information, please contact IEBA USA here.

The annual dinnerwill follow the meeting and will be held at Bar Giornale, Leopoldstraße 7. For dinner all paid up members of IEBA (or promise to pay their subscription within a month) are invited plus speakers. As the number of places is limited please can you register with [email protected]beforehand (and specify Meat, Fish or Vegetarian menu).
We will be returning to Brussels for the 2017 Conference, which will be held slightly earlier, at the beginning of March.
We will be continuing our very reasonable pricing philosophy developed in order to attract even more delegates, and in order to achieve a good balance of delegates, we will continue to limit attendance to two paying delegates from each organisation that is a service provider (insurance company, consultant, broker, etc). We do not limit attendance from corporate delegates (i.e. those responsible for the employee benefits of their organisation's own employees).
