ETF is hosting a series of virtual forums for employers to connect with health benefits vendors in advance of the It's Your Choice 2021 open enrollment period. These virtual forums with the vendors will provide the same personal interaction with a vendor as a benefit fair or kickoff event from the safety of your own home or office. ETF invites all state and local employers to participate in these sessions. All general, vendor-appropriate questions are welcome, including topics outlined below.

Please note that these sessions are for employers only. Separate sessions will be published soon for members.

Registration is required for all of these one-hour sessions. See session details and register now.

These sessions will be moderated to help answer as many employer questions as possible. Please do not ask questions that include personally identifiable information (PII) or protected health information (PHI).
