TUC trustee conference

Blimey, is it that time of the year already? A few bits about the TUC's forthcomng annual trustee conf below, more details and registration here.
Tuesday 30 June 2009, Congress House, London

In this time of financial turmoil, what are the prospects for pensions? And what can trustees do to steer pension savings through the storms and invest responsibly for the long-term future? Trustees, trade unions, employers and governments have been wrestling with these questions as the recession hits company balance sheets and investments.

This conference aims to provide trustees with informed commentary from leaders in the pensions and investment fields. It is an important opportunity to find out about and debate the latest developments in pensions policy, regulation and investment.

The conference will be chaired by Kay Carberry, TUC Assistant General Secretary, and the high-profile programme of speakers includes:

Rosie Winterton MP, Minister for Pensions and the Ageing Society

Brendan Barber, TUC General Secretary

Jeannie Drake, Acting Chair of the Personal Accounts Delivery Authority

David Norgrove, Chair of the Pensions Regulator

Nigel Peaple, Director of Policy at the NAPF

Gillian Tett, Capital Markets Editor, Financial Times

Colin Melvin, Chief Executive of Hermes Equity Ownership Services

John Evans, General Secretary of TUAC; the Trade Union Advisory Committee to the OECD

The conference is also a valuable opportunity to meet fellow trustees, trade unionists and pensions and investment experts to exchange information and experience. A series of tailored workshops will allow delegates to get into more depth on some of the issues, and the drinks reception at the end of the day is a great chance to meet fellow delegates and share thoughts over a glass of wine.
