The systemwide Web Town Hall on UC Benefits has been rescheduled to Friday, Sept. 24, from 10:00-11:30 a.m.
The Web Town Hall – a first in UC history – is intended to give faculty, staff and retirees an opportunity to ask questions about UC benefits and to share any concerns they have. The event will be moderated by Penelope Herbert, staff advisor-designate to the Regents.
Panelists will include Nathan Brostrom, executive vice president for business operations; Peter Taylor, chief financial officer; Dwaine Duckett, vice president for human resources; and Provost Lawrence Pitts, executive vice president for academic affairs of the UC system. UC leaders are hosting this online town hall meeting to talk with faculty, staff and retirees about post-employment benefits, health care costs, UC’s budget and other university issues.
It will be a live, interactive webcast. Faculty, staff and retirees from across the UC organization will be able to view the webcast by going to http://www.ustream.tv/ucevents.
