POTENTIAL RURAL IMPACTS OF PENSION REDUCTIONS

2:00 pm EST

This study explores the exposure of rural communities to the rising risk of public and private pension fund insolvency. As rural communities continue to grey, America’s heartlands will increasingly rely on pension incomes to drive their economies. The statuses of private, multiemployer and public pension funds are reviewed and standard input-output multiplier analyses are conducted to relate changes to larger regional impacts. Of the Midwestern counties selected in this study, the share of income tax returns with pension or annuity incomes ranged from 16 percent to 40 percent, comprising between six and 23 percent of total household adjusted gross income.

Presented by: Steve Deller, University of Wisconsin-Madison/Extension; Judy Stallmann, University of Missouri, and Steven Miller, Michigan State University.

Rebalancing Work and Life: Be the Model

11:00 am EST

This workshop provides you with a framework for identifying and rebalancing your work and life priorities. For example, people who take care of others often put everyone else’s needs first. But, by practicing and modeling great self-care, you can bring even more to your work and personal relationships. The tools you will gain in this workshop will help you see how the choices you make every day can bring more energy, happiness and appreciation to yourself and the people you are close with at work and at home. This allows you to model your ‘best’ self as you create your successful work-life balance.

 Learning Objectives:

  • Participants will learn to use tools to assess their current life priorities and their current work-life balance.
  • Participants will look at reprioritizing their busy lives to be more in line with their own values and life goals.
  • Participants will learn some quick ‘mini’ refresh tools which will allow you to give more to yourself and to others.
