Upcoming Agenda

Date: Tuesday, February 2, 2016
Time: 9:00am
Location: Conference room 111A, Chancellor's Complex

Guest Speakers:
Kelly Maheu, Director, Academic Compensation/Info Systems & Data Management – Academic Personnel
Cindy Palmer, Assistant Vice Chancellor – Academic Personnel

This month we are pleased to announce an all APS agenda.  After opening remarks, Kelly Maheu will provide an update on the Faculty Onboarding Process and what that means for your department.  Then, AVC Cindy Palmer will provide an objective perspective on the proposed changes to the University of California retirement plan. Cindy’s presentation is not meant to be all encompassing, but a primer of the salient changes proposed for the retirement plan and to help each of us better understand the proposed changes.

This presentation is timely because UCOP recently published an invitation from President Napolitano inviting faculty, staff and other UC members to provide feedback on task force recommendations for new retirement benefits that will affect future UC employees. Executive Vice President/Chief Operating Officer, Rachael Nava, who chaired the task force, will hold two webinars in February to discuss the recommendations with and field questions from the UC community.

  • Webinar #1: Monday, Feb. 1, 2:30­–4 p.m.
  • Webinar #2: Wednesday, Feb. 10, 1–2:30 p.m.

To join each webinar:

The final proposal will be presented by President Napolitano to the Regents this March and will affect new employees hired on or after July 1, 2016. Since the UC retirement program is a valuable recruiting and retention tool, it is important for each of us to familiarize ourselves with the proposed changes through discussion and participation via the webinar, consider the impact of the proposed changes, and avail ourselves of the opportunity to express our thoughts online at: http://ucnet.universityofcalifornia.edu/compensation-and-benefits/2016-retirement-benefits/comments.html
