The East Tennessee Compensation Association (ETCA) was founded in 1992 as an opportunity for Human Resources professionals in the greater East Tennessee area to network and share best practices in compensation, employee benefits, and work-life disciplines — what we refer to as Total Compensation.

In an effort to broaden our audience and reflect the diversity of our programs, the name of our group was changed in 2004 to the East Tennessee Compensation and Benefits Association (ETCBA).


  • To provide a centralized forum to communicate issues, trends, and innovative programs in compensation and benefits.
  • To create the opportunity for compensation and benefits professionals to share and exchange views, ideas, and information.
  • To promote and exchange the local availability of high quality training and professional development programs through sponsorship of technical speakers, panels, and WorldatWork seminars and certification courses.
  • To provide networking opportunities for compensation and benefits professionals.
