About the Baltimore Chapter


The Baltimore Chapter was established in 1985 as a local educational resource for those who hold or are seeking to obtain the CEBS designation. Unique to its membership is the diverse representation from all sectors of the employee benefits field -- benefits managers, consultants, insurance company representatives, administrators, trust officers, attorneys, investment specialists as well as individuals from government agencies and departments.


The Baltimore Chapter is governed by a board of directors and is supported by its various committees. The Chapter sponsors monthly educational programs covering a variety of topics about employee benefits and conducts other activities that foster greater visibility of the CEBS designation in the local community.





The International Society of Certified Employee Benefit Specialists (ISCEBS) is the premier interactive community providing educational resources, innovative thinking and collective wisdom to help members excel and prosper in their careers. This membership organization is for those who have earned the Certified Employee Benefit Specialist (CEBS), Group Benefits Associate (GBA), Retirement Plans Associate (RPA) and Compensation Management Specialist (CMS) designations.


Members have access to a variety of educational resources and networking opportunities that can broaden their knowledge and enhance their careers. Since 1981, the Society has provided educational programs, information and networking resources, publications, and other services to a diverse group of benefits professionals.


New for 2009, active CEBS students with at least one exam passed may now join the Society as affiliate members. Students will have access to premier services--including the ISCEBSLink, Information Center and Online Community.  


Today, nearly 4,000 CEBS, GBA, RPA and CMS designees are members of the Society.
