CIEBA was formed in 1985 to provide a nationally-recognized forum and voice in Washington for ERISA-governed corporate pension plan sponsors on fiduciary and investment issues. Members are the senior corporate finance officers who individually manage and administer ERISA-governed corporate retirement plan assets.

The effectiveness of CIEBA in its role as an authoritative resource on pension and investment issues is due in large measure to the expertise and active participation of its members. Membership is limited exclusively to ERISA-governed corporate plan sponsors. In order to become a member of CIEBA you should:

  • Be the senior person in your company with primary responsibility for the investment of defined benefit and/or defined contribution retirement assets
  • Be employed by a corporation with $1 billion in revenues or with $250 million or more of benefit plan investments under management
  • Participate in CIEBA's annual Membership Profile Survey for defined benefit and contribution plans. Individual responses are confidential

The CIEBA membership meets twice a year to address both public policy and investment issues through open dialogue with key public policymakers and investment industry leaders.
