Consultative Committee SuperConnected newsletter
Profile of Dani Murrie

A message from Dani

I’m delighted to introduce the first edition of Super Connected, your newsletter specially dedicated to you, as a Consultative Committee representative. Super Connected will address key issues the Consultative Committee brings forward as well as keep you abreast of important fund updates.

In this edition we cover:

In our most recent Consultative Committee survey, we identified an opportunity to increase our engagement with you. The Consultative Committee plays an important role in representing the views of our members, and we recognise that strong engagement can lead to better retirement outcomes for our members.

I encourage you to send me any feedback you may have about Super Connected so that our team can improve its content moving forward and keep you informed.

Thank you for your ongoing efforts as a Consultative Committee representative and I look forward to engaging with you again at the upcoming Roadshows around the country.

Kind regards

Dani Murrie
Chief Marketing and Growth Officer

The Consultative Committee moving forward

The Consultative Committee has a key role to play in helping us achieve great retirement outcomes for our members. After all, it’s a special voice that represents our members.

The committee comprises 148 members from 37 universities – each university is entitled to four representatives. It discusses important issues and makes key decisions associated with UniSuper’s governance and operation, and ultimately helps us understand and address what’s important to your employers and colleagues.

We recently undertook our latest Consultative Committee survey and thank those who took the time to participate. Your feedback is invaluable and from it, we’ve identified numerous opportunities to help you. Some of you told us that you required more communication to effectively perform your role on the committee. That’s led to the creation of this newsletter, and it will become a regular fixture in conveying important fund information in a timely manner.

We’re also pleased to announce the Consultative Committee website is currently being updated to incorporate some improvements. It will allow for ease of access to information regarding recent issues and will contain more detail on your roles and responsibilities on the committee. We’ll aim to communicate updates on website development as they occur and encourage you to familiarise yourself with it when it goes live.

Consultative Committee Roadshow

We’re excited to reveal details of the upcoming Consultative Committee Roadshow, which will visit the various state Member Centres across Australia in July.

We're looking forward to meeting with you. You’ll have the opportunity to meet with and hear from key UniSuper stakeholders, including CEO Peter Chun, Head of Employer Partnerships Julie Stockton, Chief Marketing & Growth Officer Dani Murrie and Policy & Advocacy Manager Benedict Davies. UniSuper board members and employer partnership managers will also attend in their local state.

Key presentations are being planned and will be followed by an “open floor” for your questions. We encourage you to ask our team about any matters on your mind, so we can best keep you informed and address any concerns you may have.

Super consultants back on campus

Our super consultants reverted to online and phone appointments to help people get on top of their super during the COVID period, but looked to re-engage with the community in person when the time was right.

We’re delighted to announce we're back on campus, ready to help and support our local community in person with our super consultants returning to university campuses across Australia. Our super consultants will be onsite at selected universities plus will make regular visits to others. We’ll let our employer partners know when super consultants will be visiting their campus so employees can plan ahead.

Importantly, you don’t have to be a UniSuper member to book an appointment with a super consultant – we’re proud to be able to share our knowledge and expertise throughout our local communities. For those who are already UniSuper members, appointments with a super consultant are included in their membership, so there’s no additional cost.

Super consultants can provide information and general advice about:

  • your UniSuper account
  • contribution types and limits
  • your investment and insurance options
  • setting up your UniSuper account.

Those interested in speaking to a super consultant can still choose to book an appointment online or over the phone if they’d prefer. We’re also offering a series of interactive webcasts, covering a range of topics, including Super fundamentals, The basics of investing your super and Retiring well.  These are also open to non-UniSuper members. Register for a webcast that interests you.
