It’s hard to believe that 2014 is history and 2015 is upon us! On behalf of the Intermountain Compensation & Benefits Association (ICBA), I would like to welcome everyone as we kick-off the New Year. For those of you who have not heard about us, the ICBA is an independent professional association committed to providing leadership in the education and development of compensation, benefits, and total rewards professionals. The ICBA advances the body of knowledge of its members through educational seminars, networking opportunities and related activities and services.
We meet roughly four or five times a year, at the Little America Hotel in downtown Salt Lake City. Our meetings include informal discussions over breakfast or lunch, featuring compensation, benefits, and/or total rewards presentations with guest speakers, and segments allowing for open discussion.
The ICBA offers membership opportunities for those who wish to improve and develop skills that will help them excel in the compensation, benefits, and total rewards professions. Annual membership dues are:
• Individual Membership: $190
• Student Membership: $50 (The student rate applies to a full-time collegiate student [12 hours or more] who is working towards a degree that will enable employment in a Human Resources related field.)
Current members can renew their annual membership, and people interested in joining can do so by clicking Join/Renew at the top of the webpage.
Meeting costs, including our Annual Conference, are included in your membership dues.
Non-members are welcome to attend meetings at a cost of $35 per meeting.
Our first meeting this year is Wednesday, January 21 at 7:30a.m. at the Little America Hotel. Clyde Robins, Vice President of Human Resources at Nutraceutical International Corporation and WorldatWork instructor, will be presenting “Future Trends in Compensation and Benefits.”
The ICBA looks forward to another successful year of great meetings, discussions, and networking. We encourage everyone to visit the website (www.icbautah.org) to see what is new and to check out this year’s schedule of events.
Also, make sure to mark your calendars for our Annual Conference to be held Wednesday, April 29th also at the Little America Hotel. It is sure to be one of our best conferences yet!
Hope you all had a great holiday season and we look forward to seeing all your familiar faces and some new ones in the coming year.
