From the Desk of the Executive Director
Welcome to the PAPERS website!!!
Since joining the Association as the Executive Director at the beginning of the year, I have been traveling throughout the state to meet our members and learn firsthand the interests and needs of our pension plan trustees. I hope you find valuable information on this site that relates directly to your profession. Our goal is to promote the goals and values of PAPERS and to be known for providing Leadership in Trustee Education. To help achieve that goal, we are planning an informative Spring Forum in Harrisburg this May. Please visit the conference tab for more information on how to register. If we have not already met, I'll look forward to meeting you then.
An announcement will be made soon on PAPERS' re-constituted certification program. Our Public Pension Certified Professional (PPCP) accreditation is respected in the retirement field and we are honored to resume the program with the May Forum.
Thank you for visiting our page. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have questions or suggestions and most importantly, if you would like to discuss how you can get more involved in PAPERS.
