She is among 100 members drawn from government, the private and public sectors, and academia to share their expertise in retirement savings.

The conference will be held June 4-5 at the Hyatt Regency Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. Additional summits are scheduled for 2001 and 2005.

Jefferson, who has been with Catholic University's Columbus School of Law since 1992, teaches courses on federal income taxations, partnership taxations, ERISA (taxation of pensions). A resident of Washington, D.C., she is a member of St. Francis de Sales parish in Northeast.

"We want to encourage people to save," said Jefferson. "Part of my job on the summit will be to help produce recommendations as to what can be done to promote pensions and individual savings."

Catholic University is a one-of-a-kind academic center: the national university of the Catholic Church, the only one established by the U.S. bishops, and located in the nation's capital. Established in 1887, the university is private and coeducational with 10 schools. Catholic University's Columbus School of Law is marking its centennial celebration this year.
