4. Employee Benefits: Summary Plan Description
Annually the Conservancy staff take on what we call a “deep dive” into various areas of the organization, to review and assess if any changes are needed in an effort to check and re-check practices and procedures to ensure compliance with policies, regulations and legal requirements. This year, management reviewed employee benefits. Management engaged Best, Best and Krieger (BB&K) to review the entire benefits package the Conservancy offers its employees. BB&K noted the only aspect of health insurance, the retirement plan and all other benefit elements needed was a Summary Plan Description (SPD). The SPD is a compilation of all employee benefits into one over-arching document. The SPD that resulted from BB&K’s recommendation is presented for committee review. Management requests the committee recommend Board approval of the SPD.
5. Whistleblower Policy Update
The Conservancy’s Whistleblower Policy was last updated and approved by the Board of Directors on August 7, 2019. This policy is presented for Committee review and approval. No changes are suggested by legal counsel or Conservancy management at this time.
Official adjournment of the meeting.
