Resource Center


Our entire team are active members of the various employee benefits organizations. Not only that, we are all frequent speakers at these events. We travel all over the country to speak at and attend the regional and annual conferences for these organizations. Because of this, we offer invaluable insight into what is really going on in the employee benefits arena; we offer advice that is not only based on our firm's 200 years of collective experience but also based on what's going on in our industry through our 100,000 hours of collective active participation at these events.

Here's what CRL is doing in 2017.
