FFEBA and its affiliated or unaffiliated entities, independent advisors, educators or business partners (collectively referred to as “Educators”), primarily coordinate and/or facilitate employee benefits training workshops for Federal employees across the United States of America.

The seminar will be conducted by an independent, professional Federal Benefits Educator; A FFEBA Network Representative is merely hosting the seminar. On occasion, A FFEBA Network Representative may host and present at the seminar if FFEBA’s professional Federal Benefits Educators are unavailable to travel. However, this rare occurrence will be disclosed properly on the invitation and workshop disclaimer. Participation in a seminar event is completely voluntary, and at the sole discretion of the invited individual to attend.
