    I am never at UBC on Tuesdays or Thursdays….other days of the week would be helpful

      Thank you for your comment. Pension seminars are held throughout the year on various days of the week and upcoming dates can be found at http://faculty.pensions.ubc.ca/seminars/.

  2. Russell Lundholm

    A special session for American UBC faculty who plan to retire in Canada would be great!

    1. Diana Iampietro

      Thank you for your comment. This special session would be broader than the Faculty Pension Plan so we have forwarded your comment to Faculty Relations as a suggestion for the 2018 Financial Lecture Series.

  3. Stephanie Spacciante

    To continue on the idea posted by Russell Lundholm, would you be able to include a special session for American UBC faculty who plan to retire in the States?? (He suggested American faculty who plan to retire in Canada.) This would be fantastic too!

    1. Diana Iampietro

      Thanks Stephanie, I will forward your comment to the Faculty Association (not Faculty Relations as mentioned in my previous comment). The Faculty Association presents the annual Financial Planning Lecture Series.

    I’m interested in the upcoming faculty seminar on Oct. 17th. Are we supposed to register for the event? I don’t see a link.
