Over lunch, FWAHU Legislative Chair Kasey Buckner, who returns from NAHU’s Capitol Conference in Washington, DC on Wednesday, will tell us what our elected officials are saying about the status of health reform. The annual Washington Update is a favorite among FWAHU members, and this year’s meeting will be no exception. 

Eric Johnson will also provide an overview of the new and improved FWAHU website, which goes live March 15th (this was planned for last month but postponed when the meeting was rescheduled). Come learn how you can get more information and more exposure from the new site.

 Last but not least, we’ll tell you who’s nominated for the positions of Secretary, Treasurer, and President Elect for the upcoming chapter year (nominations close March 10th, so if you know somebody who’d like to serve please hurry and nominate them).

ERISA and Health Plans

Most group health plans sponsored by employers must comply with the Employee Retirement and Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA), a Federal law that sets standards to protect employee benefits. Who better to talk with us about such an important topic than someone from the Department of Labor’s Employee Benefit Security Administration – the government agency that oversees and enforces ERISA?
