President's Message

Hello CBN Members!

Happy Fall!  Hope you all got to enjoy the few beautiful fall days we’ve had so far.  Some of us did enjoy a wonderful evening happy hour on October 9th at Frisco Barroom ~ and we topped it off as we watched the Cardinals beat the Braves 13-1!  What a fun time!  Come join us next time ~ watch your email and the website for future dates!

We have a great program scheduled for November 12th.  Beth Grellner, a Health and Benefits Regional Leader with Willis Towers Watson will spotlight Modernizing Total Rewards programs (with a focus on Benefits) and improving the overall Employee Experience.  Connect with Beth and other CBN members and learn what leading employers are considering for their programs in the coming years.  RSVP here.

If you’re working on your CCP certification (or even if you’re not) mark these dates on your calendar for the WorldatWork classes we will be hosting in 2020: 

  • o   March 4 - 5:  Regulatory Environments for Compensation (C1)
  • o   May 6 - 7:  Business Acumen for Compensation Professionals (C8)
  • o   October 7 - 8:  Accounting and Finance for the Human Resources Professional (T2)

All classes will be held at Webster University.  Registration will begin in January through World at Work.  *****Stay tuned for another exciting class to be announced soon!!*****

Are you looking for another professional development opportunity?  WorldatWork is looking for presenters for the 2020 Total Rewards Conference in Minneapolis, June 7-10.  The theme will be “Bringing Great Work to Life.”  Act soon!  Deadline for proposals is November 18.  Please visit the WorldatWork Call for Proposals page for more information.

  • And we have yet another exciting opportunity!! … How would you like to serve on the CBN Professional Development Committee? (Please!) You would act as the liaison between WorldatWork and CBN and coordinate other CBN-sponsored WorldatWork events.  As you can tell a lot of the legwork has already been done as we have the 2020 classes booked, but we need someone to be the trailblazer in seeing them through!   Please contact me if you can help!
  • WE are the land of opportunity!  Please take advantage of these offerings and pass the word on to your coworkers and friends.  Get involved ~ be rewarded!

As always, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me personally if you have any questions, comments, or feedback on anything CBN-related.  Work phone is 314.994.2926.  Email me at ddickinson@archcoal.com or Darla.dickinson@gmail.com.

Thank you as always for your membership in CBN, and I look forward to continuing our mission of developing and connecting compensation and benefits professionals in the greater St. Louis area.  I look forwarding to seeing you soon.
