Spring Seminar! Benefits Journey: Fundamentals to Expertise

The speakers and topics are being finalized now.

Our Keynote Speaker is Melanie Curtice, a partner at Stoel Rives LLP.

Melanie practices in the Employee Benefits section of the firm’s Benefits, Tax and Private Client group where she works with employers on health and welfare benefit plan matters and the compliance issues that arise in connection with such arrangements. In December 2011, Melanie was appointed by then State of Washington Governor Christine Gregoire to the first governing board of the Washington Health Benefits Exchange. Melanie has received recognition by Best Lawyers in America® (Employee Benefits Law) and “America’s Leading Lawyers for Business.” From 2001-2009 she served in various board positions of the Western Pension & Benefits Council, including president of the Seattle Chapter and president of the national Council.

Our Luncheon Speaker is Maureen Manley, MA.

Determination and resilience has served Maureen in her many accomplishments. Maureen was a member of the US Cycling Team. She won a National Championship, set a national record, earned a silver and 2 bronze medals at National Championships, competed in 3 World Championships and won a silver medal in the 1990 World Championships. Then her cycling career came to an abrupt halt at the sudden onset of Multiple Sclerosis. Maureen turned her determination and focus to learn how best to recover from her illness. She also picked up a Master’s Degree in Integrated Wellness and has established a private practice so she can help others. She has also returned to her much-loved sport of cycling.
