Indiana Benefits Conference

About the IBC

Employee benefits law and regulation has required the expanded involvement of professional oversight during the past several decades. Multiple disciplines, such as accounting, actuarial, investment, and legal, have all developed their individual niches since the enactment of ERISA in 1974 and the rest of the employee benefit alphabet soup of acronyms that came into being thereafter.

It was the founding purpose of the IBC to provide a regular forum around which these various professional groups could assemble for presentations and exchange. Without interfering with the professional focus of each, the IBC encourages the coordination of thought and application among all employee benefit professionals. This sharing should produce a better result for plan sponsors for whom this collective expertise is made available.

In addition to those practicing outside, employee benefit professionals employed inside of sponsor organizations are also invited to join. The IBC recognized early on that combining the theoretical with the practical provides greater value for all concerned.

To achieve these worthwhile ends, the IBC meets eight times each year to hear from its members or other experts regarding timely topics of general interest. A balance of health and welfare benefits and pension benefits issues are presented during each cycle. To accommodate busy schedules, an extended lunch hour is utilized. This format allows time for both networking and professional repartee.


When does IBC meet? 12 noon to 1:30 PM usually on the third Tuesday of each month from September through May (except December).
