2020 Annual Conference

Save the date: Thursday, April 30, 2020

Location: Overland Park Convention Center in Overland Park, Kansas.


To registrants for the 2020 Employee Benefits Institute,

I hope this finds you and the members of your family in good health.

The Board of Directors of the Employee Benefits Institute recently held a special meeting. The purpose was to consider what changes, if any, should be made to plans for next month’s annual Employee Benefits Institute conference, in light of the worsening COVID-19 news and the resulting associated health risks to attendees, speakers, exhibitors, and staff members at UMKC. Although we talked through a variety of options, we ultimately decided to cancel the 2020 program. We considered, but after long discussion rejected, the possibility of rescheduling the 2020 program for later in the year, or attempting to put on a strictly virtual conference.

We regret canceling the program set for next month, but are confident it is the right decision. We are particularly sad to have lost the benefit of the good work of the planning committee in preparing to execute the 2020 program. I’m confident next year’s program will be excellent.

UMKC CLE will begin processing refunds of registration fees already paid. This may take up to 30 days to process due to the number of cancelled events and registrations they are handling.

Save the date for the 2021 Annual Conference of the Employee Benefits Institute, April 29, 2021, Overland Park Convention Center, Overland Park, Kansas. Information will be updated on the following website when available www.employeebenefitsinstittute.com.

Be well.
Warmest regards,

John L. Utz

Chairperson, 2020 Employee Benefits Institute
