WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The nation’s leading flexible compensation benefits experts will convene Aug. 5-7 in Austin, Texas to attend the Employers Council on Flexible Compensation (ECFC) 28th Annual Administrators’ Symposium.
Attendees at the three-day event will gain up-to-the-minute knowledge for the impending 2016 open enrollment season. Those “in the know” when it comes to the latest in healthcare legislation and Affordable Care Act (ACA) compliance and guidance will share practical advice, technical education, updates on lobbying initiatives, including the Cadillac Tax, and news on the regulatory front. Deep-dive sessions will focus on key issues that will impact tax-advantaged benefit plans and the industry in 2016 and beyond.
“The healthcare landscape has changed dramatically over the past year, with new guidance and regulation redefining how employers – and their employees – approach healthcare benefits today and in retirement,” said Ben Morris, ECFC Conference Committee Chair. “You can’t be a part of the health industry, flex business or even be covered by a health insurance policy without being affected by the tidal wave of healthcare change that has been coming from federal agencies and ACA implementation this past year.”
The ECFC’s Administrators’ Symposium, organized specifically for third-party administrators, brokers and agents, insurance carriers, plan sponsors and employers, also offers an opportunity for attendees to earn continuing education credits towards ECFC’s industry-standard-setting professional certification programs.
The symposium is designed to arm ECFC members and leaders in the tax-advantaged benefits industry with valuable knowledge and skills to help them guide their clients through the 2016 open enrollment process. Attendees will also come away with fresh ideas to help grow their businesses, add value, enhance client service and tap into new advances in technology to further build consumer engagement programs.
“The annual ECFC Administrators’ Symposium presents a matchless opportunity for members and non-members alike to demonstrate their knowledge of the industry and contribute and learn from each other,” Morris said. “ECFC members are ahead of the curve when it comes to change because, collectively, we’ve been a recognized voice and proponent for tax-advantaged benefits programs for more than 30 years. And, as such, we have played a critical role in helping to shape and interpret healthcare legislation.”
