Serving as a trustee of an Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA)-sponsored retirement plan or as part of an investment committee that acts as a fiduciary is an important responsibility. You agree to preserve the assets entrusted to you on behalf of the plan participants and beneficiaries you represent. The legal requirements expected of most fiduciaries are, in many ways, the same as those of prudent investment professionals.

In other words, fiduciaries are expected to make fund-management decisions with the same professionalism as a prudent expert.

 

Who can be a fiduciary?

The Dover String Quartet will perform the world premier of three pieces written by Williamstown composer and iBerkshires.com music columnist Stephen Dankner at Oct. 12 at the Clark Art Institute.

When most people think of classical music, several assumptions are made: this music is anachronistic, not of our day and age; it’s old, written by dead composers; and the focus is on the performers, especially if the piece is difficult to play.

Residents advocated for the return of a full-service hospital despite a report that says it can only function with a special federal designation.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — A report detailing in hard numbers the health care needs of the community — one that does not include a full-service hospital — has been a hard pill for residents to swallow.

More than 150 people attended a review on Tuesday night of a community health needs study commissioned by the state, a report expected to shape the future delivery of health care in North County.

While there was plenty of thanks for Berkshire Medical Center's prompt reopening of what had been North Adams Regional Hospital's

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. -- Bobby Schneidman made nine saves for Williams College in a 1-1 tie with Rensselaer on Tuesday at Cole Field.   Zach Grady scored an unassisted goal in the 79th minute to erase a 1-0 lead for RPI (6-1-2).   Williams (3-2-1) amassed a 33-11 advantage in total shots, but RPI keeper Rob Dewald matched Schneidman's save total with nine, including one in overtime.   Williams also had an apparent game-winning goal erased in OT because of an offsides call.   The Ephs travel to face Connecticut College on Saturday.

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Board of Selectmen decided on Monday to ask for submissions for potential designs for the first town flag.   For the second meeting, the board considered a proposal developed by a group of citizen volunteers that incorporates five themes that group considered central to the town: education, the arts, agriculture, open space and history.   Earlier this month, the Selectmen decided to solicit comments on that design through an online survey. On Monday, they heard that a strong majority of the comments received

Bicentennial Medal winner Ethan Zuckerman delivers the convocation address on Saturday. WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — As the Williams College senior class entered the home stretch of its collegiate career, the college's president reminded the students not to coast.   Adam Falk used Saturday's Convocation to point out that it was natural for members of the class of 2015 to enter their final year on campus with a sense of what to expect and an expectation of what the year will be like.   "Resist that particular impulse," Falk told the students gathered in Chapin Hall. "It's natural to want to be comfortable, but you didn't come to Williams to be

To the Editor:

On Friday, Sept. 19, 2014, the report came out, and it's 107 pages. In the end, it proclaims the residents of this area don't need a full-service hospital.

But when reading between the lines, this area has a higher rate of heart problems cancer, asthma, obesity and an increase of those aged 64 and up. It also mentions the problem of transportation, so it's just these reason alone are why we need a full-service hospital.
