    No Weight Gain Contest

    Weigh-in the week of November 13, 2017
    Weigh-out the week of January 8, 2017

    Most Americans gain an average of 1-3 pounds during the holidays. While this may not seem like a lot, these "bonus" pounds can add up over time. This self-directed holiday program can help you stay focused on eating healthy and fitting in exercise — so you can keep off those extra pounds.

    Practice healthy habits that support weight management and reduce your stress over the holidays. Your goal is to maintain your weight during the holiday season so that no more than 2 pounds is gained. Weight loss is encouraged, but not required.

    Incentives include a gift at weigh-in, a chance for up to 30 Healthy Lifestyle Activity Points  and an opportunity to win a $100 Corporate Rewards Gift Card!*

    For more information, visit the No Weight Gain webpage. Register for the contest and find a weigh-in location and date.

    On Tuesday October 3, 2017, the Board of Supervisors approved the transfer of all current 457 Deferred Compensation plans to Nationwide under the Arizona State Retirement Systems (ASRS) Supplemental Salary Deferral Plan (SSDP). This transfer will take place for all ICMA-RC, Prudential and current Nationwide/National Association of Counties (NACo) plan participants.  The transition process is currently being developed and is expected to take place during the second quarter of 2018.
    Nationwide will transfer funds to investment options that are most similar to current plan elections.  After the transition concludes, you will have full access to your new Nationwide account and will be able to make whatever changes you wish. Read the full article here.
