It's Your Choice 2017: Kick-Off Meeting, Open Enrollment
& E-Learning

It’s Your Choice 2017 open enrollment: October 17 – November 11, 2016

It's Your Choice Employer Kick-Off Meeting
This year, ETF will again be presenting a live webinar of the annual It’s Your Choice kick-off meeting from the Crowne Plaza. This will provide employers the opportunity to attend the kick-off meeting in person or by live webinar. ETF has expanded the number of lines that can be used to connect with the webinar, so more employers can attend online this year. Employers who decide to attend via the live webinar will have an opportunity to interact by asking questions online during the presentation. A recorded version of the meeting will be posted on ETF’s website afterward.
