Planning for the '90s" is the theme of the 17th annual UI Pre-Retirement Planning Conference. Open to all UI employees and their spouses, the free conference will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. March 25 in Illini Rooms A and B in the Illini Union. Conference organizers emphasize the attraction of the information to be presented for staff members of all ages. The principles of financial, legal and long-term health-care planning can apply to any stage of life - from those far from retirement to those who are counting the days until retirement. It's also a bargain; often it can cost $70 or more an hour to talk to such experts. Speakers at this year's program and their topics: * David Sinow, president of Strategic Capital Management and adjunct professor of finance, "Financial Planning for the '90s." * Robert F. Rich, professor and director of the Institute for Government and Public Affairs, "Health Care: Predictions and Prognoses." * John H. Elder, a Champaign attorney, "Trusts, Wills and Estate Planning." * Carol McClure, director of the Benefits Center, benefits, insurance and the tax-sheltered annuity program. * James Beedie, associate executive director of the State Universities Retirement System, retirement benefits. A long lunch break will allow conference participants to browse at an Information Fair in the South Lounge. Representatives from the business, professional and university communities will be present to answer questions and distribute free literature related to retirement planning. The conference is sponsored by the offices of the chancellor, the provost, vice chancellor for administration and human resources, and academic human resources; the Personnel Services Office; the Illini Union; the Office of Continuing Education and Public Service; the Mailing Center; and University Food Services. Advance registration is requested but not required for attendance. Pre-registration forms have been mailed to most staff members.
