• 2021 Virtual Lawyers and Administrators Meeting

    April 7, 2021

    Welcome to our 2021 Virtual Lawyers and Administrators Meeting! The meeting took place on April 7 from 10:00 Eastern – 4:00 Eastern.

    Our Lawyers and Administrators Meeting brings together technical experts and plan professionals on multiemployer health and pension plan topics to discuss the cutting edge issues facing our plans. While we are disappointed that because of the ongoing pandemic we won’t be able to welcome you to Washington, DC in person this year, we are pleased to be able to offer you the same great opportunity to interact with representatives from the government agencies with jurisdiction over our plans and with technical experts and plan professionals on the issues that are important to you in a virtual format.

    Full agenda and materials available below. If you have registered, please log in to our Attendee Hub to attend sessions, view speaker photos and bios, visit our great sponsors, and join the discussion.
