BOONE COUNTY COMMISSIONER KAREN M. MILLER
APPOINTED TO NACO DEFERRED COMPENSATION ADVISORY COMMITTEE
Commissioner Karen M. Miller was recently appointed to the National Association of Counties (NACo) Deferred Compensation Advisory Committee by NACo President Chris Rodgers. As a member of this committee, Commissioner Miller will work with elected and appointed county officials from across the nation to oversee the Deferred Compensation Program offered through a partnership between NACo and Nationwide Retirement Solutions.
Each member of the committee serves a three-year term. They, along with Nationwide representatives, meet three times a year to review progress reports, new product offerings and future plans. By receiving progress reports from Nationwide regarding the amount of assets and how they are distributed and invested, as well as the number of new entities and participants by size of entity, the Advisory Committee is able to assess and advise regarding the results and possible changes that might further improve them. This involvement of county participants sets NACo’s Deferred Compensation Program apart from others. NACo will provide travel arrangements for Commissioner Miller to attend the upcoming fall meeting, which will be held November 13, 2012 in Monterey, California.
