Hello Friends!


Wow, can you believe it’s almost 2016 already? Where did 2015 go?!


The Intermountain Compensation & Benefits Association has had an exciting year, but the number of programs coming up as we move towards the New Year has never been more prolific. Check out our website and the upcoming events page for details on our ICBA events and classes. Our next event will be a luncheon held on January 20th at the Little America. We will be pleased to hear a panel discussion on giving meaningful rewards with limited budgets.


If you couldn’t attend our November 18 meeting, you missed an excellent presentation by Susan Grassli, ACA Compliance Director at GBS.  Susan provided a critical and timely presentation on ACA Reporting.  Check the Resources page to view the slides from her presentation.  I've already printed a copy for myself.  They are an excellent resource!!


My term as your President will conclude on December 31 and your current Vice President, Carolin Spencer will assume the Presidency.  The transition is already well under way as Carolin has already begun making preparations for upcoming events including securing speakers for our Annual Conference in April, 2016!


Some of our most valuable and experienced board members have decided to move on to “other opportunities” after serving on the board for a few (or more) years with distinction. I and ICBA would like to thank Jennica Cannedy for her invaluable work as our Education Coordinator.  Judy Martindale, our current secretary and former Membership Coordinator, has done an excellent job for ICBA over the past few years as well.  We are grateful for their service and will miss them. 


The thing that I have enjoyed the most about my time as an ICBA leader is working with my fellow board member volunteers.  Our chapter is very fortunate to have so many wonderful people who volunteer their time to put on great classes and events, publish the newsletter, update the website, organize social programs, recruit new members, coordinate certification courses and keep the chapter vibrant for its members.


It’s hard to believe that by the time we meet again, it will be 2016!!   2015 has really flown by, and I want to again express my gratitude to our members and to our all-volunteer board for their many contributions to ICBA. 


We hope to see you at our next luncheon on January 20th, but either way, here’s wishing the best for you and a great start to the New Year!


Happy Holidays!

Kathleen Lund

ICBA President
