Held prior to the 60th U.S. Annual Employee Benefits Conference.

The Trustees Masters Program (TMP) is for experienced trustees who want to think and act more boldly, systematically and proactively. It is designed to build on a trustee’s existing knowledge base and experience. Candidates for the Trustees Masters Program must attend two full days of classes. As a graduate of the Trustees Masters Program, you will receive a certificate of completion for your course work. After attending specially designed sessions offered on the first day of the Annual Employee Benefits Conference, you will receive a commemorative pin. Graduates are welcome to return and attend any of the TMP graduate sessions or the special summit offered prior to the Annual Conference each year.

The Trustees Masters Program is divided into three parts to help facilitate your ongoing education and recognition: the Core Program, Candidate Classes (for program completion), and Graduate Classes.  All TMP graduates are welcome to attend any of the TMP graduate sessions as well as the TMP Advanced Leadership Summit, held on Sunday before every Annual Conference.
