TUC Member Trustee Network annual conference

Plug for “Taking the long view - Effective pension trusteeship in uncertain times”. You can say that again.

This is the annual conference organised by the TUC for members of its pension trustees network. I missed last year due to a clash with UNISON conference. But in previous years they have always been very good and informative events.

Keynote addresses from James Purnell, Secretary of State for Work and Pensions; Robert Peston, BBC Business Editor; and Brendan Barber, TUC General Secretary, will look at the UK and global context.

Workshop sessions will provide an opportunity for more detailed discussion of key issues, including scheme funding, DC governance, responsible investment and alternative investment strategies”.

I cannot come, sadly they do not like disabled people beating the shit out of ministers even if they are New Labour. (Purnell)

Hi Robert
Actually, Purnell seems alright (apart from the sideburns).
