NACo and Nationwide Retirement Solutions have announced the first “Aspire Award: Honoring Innovative Leadership in Promoting County Employee Retirement Savings” to recognize two counties that have gone above and beyond in empowering their employees for retirement success.  Counties who offer their employees the opportunity to participate in the NACo Deferred Compensation Program, administered by Nationwide Retirement Solutions, are eligible for nomination for the Aspire Award.

As an employer, a county serves as plan sponsor to its employees’ retirement programs.  Some counties have developed and implemented innovative approaches to create opportunities for their employees to be retirement ready.

The awards will be presented during NACo’s Annual Conference, July 10-13, 2015 in Mecklenburg County (Charlotte), North Carolina.  The deadline for applications is May 15, 2015. Consideration will be given to the plan sponsors who present measurable outcomes that result from unique, unusual, and original efforts to successfully engage county employees in their retirement futures.  Further information and the application are available at http://www.naco.org/aspire.   

​Counties across the country are holding activities and events next month as part of National County Government Month, held each year in April. It's the ideal time to tell citizens why counties Minnesota matter.
