President’s Message

EBPA was founded over 40 years ago by agents in the Puget Sound region. The goal was to create a forum to advance knowledge and share best practices within the community. At its foundation EBPA is a collective. A place where people come together with a common goal to learn, innovate and proliferate knowledge into our community.

The organization is led by a volunteer Board of Trustees. Just like the membership of EBPA, these trustees are employed by carriers, third party administrators, local employers and broker/consulting firms, many of which compete against each other. They are giving back to the industry which has supported them, as well as building relationships with individuals they may never otherwise work with.

While much has changed in the last 40 years, the desire to learn is human nature. National attention, legislation and an enormous influx of investments in the industry over the last two decades creates a never ending supply of learning opportunities. Healthcare remains one of the few, or possibly the only, largely undisrupted industry. Our goal at the EBPA is to provide a collective space to share innovations, rethink the models of delivery and advance an industry which impacts so many personally.

I’m proud of this organization, and the team we have built to help drive this vision. I invite you to join us in this mission, and help shape the next four decades in benefits for your community.


Justin Curtis

EBPA Board President
