Legal and Legislative Committee
Chair: Stephen McCaffrey, National Grid
The Legal & Legislative (L&L) Committee’s primary mission is to provide the PSCA perspective in Washington on sound retirement policy in both the regulatory and legislative areas. The L&L Committee meets quarterly and has numerous sub-committee meetings. The end result of our work is that the American private retirement system – in particular, 401(k) plans – has never been stronger or more influential. Most importantly, we are preserving the ability of each employee to retire in a dignified and financially secure fashion.
Education and Communication Committee
Chair: Sharon Shea, The Procter & Gamble Company
The Education and Communication Committee provides access to effective, high quality communication and financial education materials/ideas that are on the cutting edge. The goal of the Committee is to help company-sponsored profit sharing/401(k) plans to positively influence employer profitability and to improve employee use and appreciation for their plan.
Provider Advisory Committee
Chair: William Shaw, The Hartford
The continuing goals of the Provider Advisory Committee are:
- To help expand PSCA membership;
- To create additional leverage for PSCA, enabling them to track and, where possible, influence governmental practices and policy toward defined contribution plans;
- To drive PSCA’s message to the national press by reinforcing issues important to the formation and preservation of defined contribution plans in the service provider and plan sponsor community;
- To maintain a meaningful dialogue with PSCA on the views of the service provider community.
National Conference Planning Committee
Chair: John Greenwell
The National Conference Planning Committee meets annually to develop the Program for PSCA’s highly regarded National Conference. Through its educational conferences and seminars, PSCA can offer the plan sponsor unbiased information, the tools to deal with common plan challenges, and timely updates on regulatory and legislative developments. This year’s efforts to improve the National Conference include changes in the program structure, increased marketing to non-members, and offering professional continuing education credits.
The Research Committee identifies areas of investigation and develops surveys to document current plan practices and employee behaviors. In addition to serving as a valuable tool for plan sponsors, PSCA’s data provides an important backbone of real-world experience to support PSCA’s legislative efforts.
