Conference fitness plan renewed; sign up now or at #arumc17

Virgin Pulse, the fitness rewards plan for clergy and spouses, has been approved for another year by the Conference Board of Pension and Health Benefits. In addition to the rewards of healthier living, participants can earn up to $275 per calendar quarter, with increasing dollar amounts given as each of four levels of point accrual is completed. 

The Arkansas Conference covers the employee costs and rewards for its members. The first pedometer is free to newly enrolled participants. If a participant already has a preferred fitness tracking device, the program will sync with many available brands and models, including Fitbit and Apple Watch. Points toward reward levels can be earned through activity, and also by reporting healthy habits on the mobile app or website.

Eligible individuals (all active clergy and spouses, as well as Conference-employed laity and spouses) may enroll in Virgin Pulse now. Existing participants who may have lost momentum (and possibly their pedometer) can rejoin the plan at any time. To enroll, visit and select Arkansas as plan sponsor when prompted. For assistance, contact Mona Williams at 501-324-8028 or, or see her at the benefits display table at Annual Conference.
