"How to get people saving into workplace pensions" will be on the agenda at all three party conferences this year, as NAPF takes to the road in Brighton (Lib Dems), Manchester (Labour) and Conservative (Birmingham) during September and October.
NAPF is working alongside leading think-tank The Smith Institute to host the fringe meetings, and, with pensions remaining high on the Government's agenda, expectations are that NAPF's meetings will get a high turnout from delegates.
NAPF chief executive Joanne Segars is speaking at all three events, and has also been invited to speak at a number of other fringe meetings to discuss and debate pensions and corporate governance issues.
NAPF has also secured leading politicians to share the NAPF platform: Pensions minister Steve Webb MP will be at the Lib Dem fringe, and shadow pensions minister Gregg McClymont MP will be at Labour. For the Conservatives, Joanne will be sharing the platform with Richard Graham MP, chairman of the All Party Occupational Pensions Group, and Tory rising star Brandon Lewis MP, a member of the Department of Work and Pensions Select Committee.
Joanne said: "Getting visibility for our issues at the Party Conference is an important facet of our political lobbying programme. As well as the fringe meetings, we also take the opportunity to meet a large number of politicians and policy makers who attend the conferences. It all part of making sure our members interests are front of mind within all the main political parties."
Details of the NAPF fringes are as follows:
1. Liberal Democrats in Brighton: Tuesday 25 September, King's Terrace, The Grand Hotel: 13.00-14.00
2. Labour in Manchester: Monday 1 October, Exchange 4&5, Manchester Central: 13.00-14.00
