News You Can't Use: EBRI turns 30

The Employee Benefit Research Institute is all too modest. Not wanting to toot their own horn, we'll do it for them! This week, EBRI, dedicated to the development of sound employee benefit programs and public policy through nonpartisan research and education, celebrated its 30th anniversary.

Although you'll find only a brief mention of it on the group's Web site, EBRI celebrated in style with a Washington, D.C. reception and tribute program that featured the likes of Rep. George Miller (D-Calif.), who called the group "one of the most valuable resources we have to help us understand what is happening" in employee benefits. Sen. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) said EBRI has "won respect among members on both sides of the aisle."

EBN congratulates EBRI and its president and CEO Dallas Salisbury on this milestone and wishes the organization continued success in the future.
