The National Association of Counties (NACo) and Nationwide Retirement Solutions are pleased to announce the “Aspire Award: Honoring Innovative Leadership in Promoting County Employee Retirement Savings”. The award has been established to recognize county plan sponsors in the NACo Deferred Compensation Program who have developed and implemented innovative approaches to help create opportunities for their employees to be retirement ready. Plan sponsors can self-nominate or be nominated by others.
More details from NACo’s website:
Some counties, as employers and plan sponsors of the NACo Deferred Compensation Program, have developed and implemented innovative approaches to help create opportunities for their employees to be retirement ready. NACo, and its program administrator, Nationwide Retirement Solutions, have created the Aspire Award to recognize two plan sponsors that have gone above and beyond in empowering their employees for retirement success.
The First Annual “Aspire Award: Honoring Innovative Leadership in Promoting County Employee Retirement Savings” will be presented during NACo’s Annual Conference, July 10-13, 2015 in Mecklenburg County (Charlotte), North Carolina.
Two awards will be presented and consideration will be given to the plan sponsors who present measurable outcomes that result from unique, unusual, original efforts to successfully engage county employees in their retirement futures. Applicants must offer a deferred compensation plan that uses Nationwide Retirement Solutions as the recordkeeper.
Applications must be received by NACo by 5 pm Eastern time, Friday, May 15, 2015. Applications may be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org or mailed to Aspire Award, NACo, 25 Massachusetts Ave, NW, Suite 500, Washington, DC 20001.
