Come meet the vendors to ask questions about benefits, retirement / financial planning and services. These vendors are a great resource and offer a wealth of information! Each of the vendors will have informational material at their table. Please keep in mind that these folks are here once a year for your benefit. Many of them have traveled a long way to be here.
We have some great door prizes! Employees will need to register for door prizes in the Caddo / Bossier and Webster rooms. A drawing for all of the prizes will be held at 1:00 pm in the UC Ballroom. Employees do not have to be present to win. A special thank you to the many vendors who have donated these prizes!
