EVH SHAPS Group June Update

5th Jun 2015 9:00am-12:30pm

EVH have been running the Scottish Housing Associations’ Pension Scheme (SHAPS) Support Group for three years.

This session offered Governing Body members the opportunity to attend a free session to receive a plain English update on the current state of play and what implications, if any, this may have for employers. Following comments from last year we extended the session length to allow time for questions to be raised and debated at a fair length.

The event was led in the main part by Gordon Birrell of Chiene + Tait Financial Planning.  Gordon was appointed by the EVH SHAPS Support Group and has ran a number of very successful surveys, enquiries and information sessions during his time with us.

We also had a number of short supporting sessions from Susan Wardlaw, The Pensions Trust and Ian Brennan, Scottish Housing Regulator.  EVH also covered the ongoing industrial relations issues and
took delegates through our highly acclaimed Pension Change Flowchart.
