Dilworth Partner Inducted into American College of Employee Benefits Counsel
At its Annual Meeting and Induction Ceremony on Sept. 17, the American College of Employee Benefits Counsel (ACEBC®) honored 17 employee benefits attorneys selected from throughout the country to serve as Fellows, including Dilworth partner Matthew Whitehorn.
Induction as a Fellow of the ACEBC® is viewed as national distinction for employee benefits lawyers who have made demonstrably substantive contributions to the field of employee benefits over the Fellow’s entire career. Each nominee is required to have focused on employee benefits law for at least 20 years and have a sustained commitment to public awareness and understanding of benefits laws through such activities as writing, speaking, public policy analysis, public education, or public service. Nominees are also required to have provided exceptionally high-quality professional services to clients, the bar, and the public. The inductees join over 400 current Fellows in the organization.
ACEBC® is a not-for-profit organization whose mission statement is: “Fostering excellence in the practice of employee benefits law and advancing public understanding of employee benefits.” The College advances its mission by encouraging the study and development of employee benefits laws and of significant legal and social policy issues impacting the regulation and management of pension, retirement, group health, welfare, and disability plans. It pursues those goals by initiating professional discussions and high- level symposiums of significant issues, offering a searchable data base of Fellows who are willing to serve as expert witnesses and/or mediators, cosponsoring continuing legal education programs, and recognizing the achievements of distinguished employee benefits attorneys.
