ABC Apprenticeship Trustee Academy Are you a current or prospective apprenticeship trustee? Are you a plan administrator? If you answered “yes” to either of these questions, the ABC Apprenticeship Trustee Academy at ABC Convention 2020 is a must-attend event. The ABC Apprenticeship Trustee Academy will provide new and current apprenticeship fiduciaries with the knowledge and tools to effectively lead the essential programs that develop our future construction professionals. When your ERISA Trust is audited, one of the first questions the U.S. Department of Labor will ask is, “Have your fiduciaries participated in continuing education?” By attending this training, you will be able to answer “Yes.” While many organizations offer this type of training to fiduciaries of employee benefit programs—at almost twice the cost—this is the only program designed specifically for merit shop apprenticeship programs. The academy focuses on risk management, better understanding your fiduciary obligations and the roles and responsibilities that come along with being a trustee. You won’t want to miss the chance to network with your fellow plan fiduciaries and learn tips from national experts. See the full schedule below and register today!
