The Western Pension & Benefits Council (WP&BC) was founded in San Francisco in 1954 to address the educational needs of pension specialists. Through the years, WP&BC expanded its scope to include those with responsibilities in the health and welfare fields. Today, WP&BC is recognized as the premier educational and professional organization in the western United States for the dynamic field of employee benefits. We now have over 1,500 members located within 11 chapters. Our purpose is to educate, provide information, and foster sound principles of benefit plan governance within the industry. The world of employee benefits is constantly changing. Today, more than ever, you need the tools and resources to effectively manage your responsibilities as a benefits professional.
Membership in WP&BC helps you to create networking relationships with professionals who understand the challenges you face daily. Take advantage of the opportunities presented by our meetings and programs to trade ideas, share resources, vent concerns, and learn new things -- all with people who share at least one very important professional interest with you.
If your passion for employee benefits education compels you to become more involved with WP&BC, opportunities abound in each chapter for volunteer leadership and committee participation by qualified and willing members. You can be an integral part in the ongoing success of your chapter. Email us today at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more!
key goal of the WP&BC is to educate its members through a variety
of programs and opportunities, all of which are aimed to provide
accurate, relevant, and timely information. As a non-profit organization, we make every effort to hold your costs down while maintaining the highest caliber of programs.
