Advocacy, Advancement, and Action
The non-profit Employers Council on Flexible Compensation (ECFC) will hold its Annual Conference in Washington, DC, from
March 8-10, 2017.
This year’s theme is “Advocacy, Advancement, & Action.” ECFC members will hear first-hand from lawmakers and regulators about what might lie ahead for the benefits and health care industries.
ECFC members will have an opportunity to be a voice for the benefits industry during scheduled Capitol Hill visits with members of Congress and leaders of U.S. regulatory agencies. It’s no secret that the future of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) is largely unclear. In the wake of a new Congress eager to dismantle the ACA, a solid plan to repeal or replace the ACA remains to be seen. This uncertainty has a ripple effect on benefits and health care industries. ECFC will address lawmakers in March during a key time for ACA legislation activity, advocating for health care consumerism including tax-advantaged plans.
The conference will feature many speakers. This year’s speakers include benefits and health care experts, attorneys, health care lobbyists, health care reform experts, leaders in public policy research, and advocates for benefits solutions.
ECFC membership encompasses employers, health plans, third party benefits administrators, benefits technology professionals, payment networks, debit card processors, financial institutions, and more. Attendees will be able to take advantage of networking opportunities and learn about what is new in the consumer directed health care space.
As a member of ECFC, Employee Benefits Corporation will have representation in Washington. Those attending include Teresa Cutler, ACFCI, CAS, Compliance Director; Sue Sieger ACFCI, CAS, Senior Compliance Consultant; and Erin Freiberg, Compliance Attorney. Teresa also serves on the ECFC Board of Directors as Director-at-Large and the ECFC Education and Government Relations and Interpretations Committees. Sue serves on the ECFC Conference Planning and Education Committees.
