Overview & Attendees:
Make plans now to attend the 47th Annual Canadian Employee Benefits Conference in Calgary. This is your foremost option for education as sessions and workshops are designed around the four key knowledge areas of effective trust fund management: legal, administration, governance and funding/investment/finance.
Count on the Annual Conference to respond directly to the challenges facing pension and benefit trust funds in 2014. You’ll explore tested ideas and gather the supporting facts you need to implement them. You’ll connect with industry leaders and peers who are facing the same issues you are. Most importantly, you will gain ideas that will help you make the most of your funds' assets in the short and long term.
With nearly 100 sessions, the Annual Conference covers a wide variety of relevant topics in a well-balanced, objective format. Broad concepts like governance and administration are addressed alongside specialty tracks on pensions, health and wellness, and training and apprenticeship trust funds. Plenty of sessions at each skill level—basic, intermediate and advanced—guarantee your educational needs will be met, whether you are new to the field, a seasoned trustee or somewhere in between. We also offer a track for our French-speaking attendees.
Benefits beyond the education—With over 1,300 individuals in attendance each year, the Annual Conference is an unmatched opportunity for networking. You’ll be able to learn alongside colleagues who share a sense of common purpose, including:
• Multi-employer fund trustees, administrators, business managers and association leaders
• Public sector plan trustees and executive directors
• Fund administrators and managers
• Third-party administrators (TPAs)
• Benefits consultants
