Research Triangle Park, NC, February 22, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- The Fairmont San Francisco is the location of the first 2014 Mid-Sized Retirement & Healthcare Plan Management Conference, March 16-19. One of a series of four annual conferences scheduled around the country, the San Francisco program is an unbiased source for human resource, benefits and finance professionals looking for answers to the critical issues they face in managing employer-sponsored retirement and healthcare plans. Featuring more than 45 individual sessions, the conference takes an educational, solution-oriented approach to such frontline topics as: the Affordable Care Act’s pay or play rules for employers, the growth of private insurance exchanges, 401(k) fee transparency, the retirement savings crisis and containing the cost of health benefits.
Keynote speakers John E. Schadl of Vanguard and Paul Fronstin of the Employee Benefit Research Institute set the stage for the conference with their first-day remarks. Mr. Schadl’s presentation, “Defined Contribution Policy in an Era of Debt and Division” looks at how the federal budget and current regulatory environment will impact 401(k) retirement plans, while Dr. Fronstin offer insights into how health benefits may change in the near future during his presentation, “The Evolution and Devolution of Employment-Based Health Benefits in a Post-ACA World.”
Conference Chairman Mark Friedman noted, “The changes taking place in the employer-sponsored benefits arena are unprecedented. From the shake-up of healthcare benefits created by the Affordable Care Act to the retirement savings crisis facing American workers, the executives responsible for managing their benefit plans have their work cut out for them. That’s why our Mid-Sized Retirement & Healthcare Plan Management Conferences are focused solely on providing benefits decision makers with the information and expert insights they need to develop a strategic framework that will prepare their benefit programs for the future.”
Individuals can earn 15 HRCI credits when they attend the entire 2 1/2-day conference. Additional credits are available for pre-conference classes.
