Hello, Dallas / Fort Worth

Dedicated to the private pension system.

Local ASPPA Benefits Councils (ABCs) provide a means for employee benefits professionals to benefit year-round from the American Society of Pension Professionals and Actuaries' (ASPPA) activities. ASPPA promotes the establishment of ASPPA Benefits Councils in an effort to bring ASPPA to its members and professional associates on a continued basis.

An active ABC offers its members a chance to spend time with people who have similar interests and gain from the exchange of information. Members have an opportunity to receive continuing education credit and to stay professionally current.
