In an article on May 2, 2013 Association TRENDS featured quotes from Venable partner Bart Stupak and of counsel Chris Condeluci's presentation before the American Society of Association Executives (ASAE) 2013 Finance, HR & Business Operations Conference in Washington, DC. The topic was "Connecting the Dots on Health Care Reform: The Law, The Policy, and What It Means for Associations."

Commenting on the Affordable Care Act, Stupak said the law is off to a "good, solid start to providing Americans quality healthcare."

Regarding the law's impact on associations, Condeluci explained that there are multiple factors that will impact associations' behavior in 2014 when the law is fully implemented. As an example, he said depending on how the state in which the association is located defines "large groups", the association might or might not opt out of its association health plan in favor of the individual subsidy contained in the law.

Venable partners Harry Atlas and Jeff Tenenbaum also gave presentations at the conference. Atlas presented "Overcome the Increased Scrutiny of Your Organization's Retirement Plan" and Tenenbaum presented "The Ultimate Lightning Round."
