Hi, I'm Chris
Equality Meets Opportunity
My short term goals on personal development include:
Enrolled in the Certified Employee Benefit Specialist® (CEBS) program which is the most respected designation in the benefits industry. The Group Benefits Associate (GBA) and the Retirement Plans Associate (RPA) form the core of the CEBS curriculum.
The CEBS designation is a credential that is recognized for the depth and relevance of critical knowledge achieved. I will earn my CEBS Designation with an estimated graduation of December 2020.
The Master of Trust Management Standards (MTMS) is a new educational program for trustees that builds upon the key knowledge areas in FTMS and ATMS, a next step that challenges trustees to take a leadership role in their funds and update their skill sets.I am planning to complete the MTMS program as soon as the program will be restarted and I estimate that before the end of 2020 I will have graduated.
My first term in the office can be characterized as massive learning and getting "up to speed" in pensions expertise. I arrived at a point where I can utilize all knowledge gained and be most effective in my role.
If re-elected I will continue to work on finalizing the Nurses Pension Plan project in all various aspects such as actuarial analysis, plan design, Statement of Investment Policies and Procedures, Joint Trust Agreement and all pieces of federal and provincial legislation needed. My goal is to help deliver a pension plan that will be superior to what BC Nurses currently have in place and I am confident that with will, dedication and hard work I will be able to do it as an integral part of the Pensions Department Team at BCNU.
