The Annual Employee Benefits Conference is a group-live instructional course and is an update for CPAs regarding topical concerns in the employee benefits field. There is no prerequisite or advance preparation required. For more information regarding administrative policies such as complaints and refunds, please contact our office at (262) 786-6700.

Insurance Producers

The International Foundation seeks approval of the Annual Conference from state insurance departments based on requests made on program registration forms. Approval is not automatically sought in all states. 

Most states require receipt of an approval request at least 90 days in advance of the program. It is important that insurance producers who need continuing education credit register early to ensure program approval will be sought in their state! Please direct any questions you may have to Laura Scholz, CEBS at (262)786-6710, option 2, or email [email protected].  ​

If there is no indication that your state is pending 2024 insurance approval in the chart below, no request for 2024 credit has been made and credit is NOT available. Please contact the Continuing Education department with any questions.

A list of sessions your state has approved will be included in your onsite registration packet and available at the service desk onsite. Sessions approved vary from state to state.

Please note these are last year's approvals for reference only until we can obtain approval.
