Summit Will Help At-Risk Groups Plan for Retirement

(Alexandria, Va., February 22, 2006) Susan R. Meisinger, SPHR, president and CEO of the Society for Human Resource Management, will represent the human resource profession as a delegate at the 2006 National Summit on Retirement Savings in Washington, D.C. on March 1-2, 2006. Meisinger was selected as a delegate by the U.S. Department of Labor.

"As HR professionals, our members see first-hand how critically important it is that employees actively engage in planning and saving for a financially secure retirement," said Meisinger. "Our challenge at this National Summit is to both expand effective practices that support retirement as well as remove obstacles that prevent greater savings. I look forward to working with other stakeholders and public policy decision-makers toward these goals at the 2006 Summit and beyond."

The Summit will focus on how to help individuals plan and save for a financially secure retirement. The Summit is held by the U.S. Department of Labor and was created by the Savings Are Vital to Everyone's Retirement (SAVER) Act.

The three main objectives of the Summit will be to advance the public's knowledge of private retirement savings, to facilitate the development of educational programs on personal savings strategies, and to develop recommendations for further research and reforms in the field of private pensions and individual retirement savings.
