Summer Greetings

August 06, 2015 11:49 AM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

This greeting is sent hoping your summer has been wonderful and you are enjoying extra time with your family making great memories before the craziness of back to school starts and the leaves begin to change.


As most of you know the new ICBA website is up and running and we are still working to make it the best website we can for our members. Please take a moment to look around the site and see how much more user friendly it has become.  Please provide us with your comments and ideas to make it even better. You can send your message right from the website and someone will promptly answer you.


I’m sure our members would agree that the ICBA is more than just a name.  We are an active group of compensation and benefits professionals, eager to learn and help others in our profession and the community.  This year started with a flurry of activity.  We have already had our January and March events, our Annual Conference in April, as well as WorldatWork certification courses.  In addition, many of you were able to attend the WorldatWork Total Rewards 2015 Conference in Minneapolis. 


Our next event will be a luncheon on September 9th beginning at 11:30 a.m. at The Little America Hotel.  We are thrilled to hear from Mark Szypko, national presenter for IBM and a member of the WorldatWork faculty.  His presentation is titled “Proposed FLSA Changes and their Impact on Organizations.”  Find out the latest on the proposed changes to the Fair Labor Standard Act, what impacts those changes will have on organizations, and what you need to know to adequately prepare your company for these significant changes.  This is a topic that impacts us all!!


We still have some great events and courses planned before the year is through, so be sure to check out the website and your email for updates. 


I am very excited about the future of our organization.  However, we could not do any of this without the support of each and every one of you.  If you have any suggestions, updates, or information on any subject that you feel might be of interest to others and you would like to share that information, or see it in the newsletter, website or our social media sites, please feel free to send an email.


Looking forward to seeing you at an upcoming event!


Kathleen Lund

ICBA President
