Heading to General Assembly? Look for Us!
The Office of Church Staff Finances will be well-represented in Kansas City! Rev. Richard Nugent, Director; Jim Sargent, Insurance Plans Director; Linda Rose, Retirement Plan Director; and Jan Gartner, Compensation and Staffing Practices Manager are all attending.
In partnership with staff from Congregational Life and Human Resources, you'll find the four of us leading
Congregations as Employers: Putting Values into Practice on Thursday afternoon from 1:30 to 5:30, with segments on Staffing for Diversity, Staffing Practices and Benefits, and Staffing for Retention and Development. There will be plenty of audience involvement and time for questions.
New at GA this year are Networking Sessions hosted by UUA staff. These gatherings are opportunities for congregational leaders with interest in a particular topic to meet, and for us to help them make the most of their time at GA. Join Jan on Wednesday at 4:30 for the
Healthy Staff Teams networking session.
And, of course, we'll be in the Exhibit Hall.
- You'll see Jim in the UUA Expressway, ready to talk with you about All Things UUA Insurance Plans.
- Across from the UUA Expressway is the Church Staff Finances booth. Compensation Consultants (and often Richard or Jan) will be available whenever the Exhibit Hall is open. Stop by to introduce yourself, ask questions, pick up a flyer and an OCSF keychain, and check out our hands-on display board.
- Next to the Church Staff Finances booth is TIAA, our Retirement Plan recordkeeper. Linda will be there, alongside TIAA representatives. TIAA joins us at GA each year to serve Plan participants and administrators, and anyone with funds invested in TIAA; do take advantage of their presence!
