Committees

The Pensions & Benefits Law Section is seeking participation in its various committees. These committees provide Section members with the opportunity to comment on proposed changes to legislation and regulatory policies, keep abreast of developments in pensions and benefits law and to network with others with similar interests. Committees need the contribution of Section members to deliver relevant services to members and to prepare submissions to legislative and regulatory bodies that reflect the full range of member perspectives.
