Are you interested in becoming more active in the International Foundation? Industry volunteers are the cornerstone of the International Foundation of Employee Benefit Plans. Their input provides value and support to the many services enjoyed by International Foundation members. We have outlined several ways for you to increase your personal involvement in the International Foundation:

  • Serving as a session moderator, panelist, roundtable discussion leader or speaker at an educational program. The International Foundation strives to include a mix of seasoned and new presenters, featuring a variety of professionals, service providers and employee benefit plan sponsors, to achieve balance and diversity.

For information on nominating yourself or a colleague, contact our executive department at

The ongoing success and quality of the International Foundation's products and services are due in large part to the collective efforts of its volunteers-those with a commitment to education and a willingness to donate extra time to support the advancement of a challenging industry. We encourage you to join that special group of leaders.
