The Future of Employee Healthcare Benefits

an AEBL program; co-sponsored by AIA East Bay

Tuesday, March 21, 2017
11:30am-1:30pm
$30 AIA and AEBL Members/$50 Non-members; includes lunch
Click here to register

1.5 CES LUs

Many companies are being faced with yearly changes to their healthcare benefit plans, which directly affects their profitability. This creates a large number in the expense column that management, human resources, and benefits managers are constantly trying to minimize, while maximizing quality benefits. Firms are caught between passing costs on to employees and trying to absorb the increasing premiums, making the decisions about health benefits ever more important in relation to total compensation and its effect on recruiting and retention.

Join AEBL, the AIA East Bay, and a panel of industry experts during this dynamic lunchtime session as we discuss the ever-changing healthcare market. Find out what others in the A/E/C are doing to stay on top of this frustratingly fluctuating trend.

We will also take a look at what the future might hold…if our new president will repeal, replace, or amend the Affordable Care Act, and how that will affect healthcare benefits for companies and employees.

Current projects include the Miami Collage Garage and a residential conversion of a historic New York cast-iron building. WORKac was named the AIA New York State Firm of the Year in 2015.

Lecture Dinner

Each year we ask East Bay firms to help underwrite the expense of bringing in a renowned architect to Cal. Through the firms’ generosity we are able to present international architects such as Andrea Leers, Fuhimiko Maki, Craig Dykers and Merrill Elam without charging for the lecture. One benefit of sponsorship is attendance at the lecture dinner. The traditional wine reception and dinner precedes Ms. Andrao’s lecture. Dinner guests have reserved seats at the lecture hall–a must for this popular lecture series!

Funds to underwrite the costs of this program are provided by the following 2017 sponsors:

Byrens Kim Design Works

Carol Shen, FAIA

Dahlin Group Architecture + Planning

Dealey, Renton & Associates
