Employee Benefits Institute

Thursday, May 4, 2017
Overland Park Convention Center

In the fall of 1986, Michael J. Baker, then Assistant Dean at the University of Missouri – Kansas City School of Law with responsibility for continuing legal education, was eager to expand the law school’s CLE offerings and create an employee benefits symposium. Mike, along with John Utz, Tom Graves, Al Martin, Myron Sildon and their steering committee created the Employee Benefits Institute.
The first program was held on June 5, 1987, at the Hyatt Regency. Approximately 120 individuals attended. Now in its 31st year, The Employee Benefits Institute has grown into one of the most important conferences in the region and has expanded its presence to include targeted workshops throughout the year and additional networking opportunities.
