Established in 1991, Total Rewards KC, formerly known as the Kansas City Compensation and Benefits Association (KCCBA), was formed when a group of compensation and benefits professionals were looking for an alternative to the local human resources associations available at the time. Their goal was to facilitate knowledge sharing and networking among seasoned compensation and benefits professionals. Those founding members were: Julie Barnett Davis, Bob Jones, Jay Knox, Chuck Lindberg, Dorothy Ramsey, Karen Ross, Bernie Schroer, Steve Stein and Lesia Troesser. In 2017, KCCBA rebranded as Total Rewards KC in order to keep up with the ever-changing industry we serve.
As an independent professional association, we are committed to providing leadership in education, development and networking opportunities for total rewards professionals in the Kansas City metropolitan area. We offer educational seminars, networking and related activities in the areas of Compensation, Benefits, Work-Life Effectiveness, Recognition, Performance Management and Talent Development.
