(Presented by Total Rewards KC)
Back by popular demand, Jim Klein, President of the American Benefits Council, will provide the inside scoop on the many political developments likely to affect the future of the Total Rewards industry, including health and tax reform.
The American Benefits Council, a Washington, D.C.-based employee benefits public policy organization advocates for employers, connecting public policy and private-sector solutions to shape employee benefits for the evolving global workforce. The Council works closely with Congress, the White House executive branch agencies and the courts to champion legislation, regulation and legal rulings favorable to its members' needs, and to defend the employer-sponsored benefits system from proposals that would add burdens, liabilities and costs.

We will be collecting most needed items for our new charity partner, Connections to Success, at the meeting. Connections to Success serves people transitioning from generational poverty, incarceration, domestic violence and other challenging and disadvantaged situations. One way they do this is to provide professional clothing for job interviews. Right now their greatest needs are professional shoes, handbags, belts, briefcases, etc. If you have any of these gently used items, please bring them to the meeting. Cash donations are always welcome!
