Welcome to the PAPERS website!!!

Just below you'll find a link to the latest edition of the PAPERS newsletter (Fall 2018). Our goal is to provide interesting reading and a variety of points of interest to spark conversations in the realm of public pensions. I hope you find the following items as informative and interesting as I have.   Thank you to those who have contributed articles and suggestions to this edition. 

 

I spent a lot of time on the road the last few months. From traveling throughout Pennsylvania to visit local government association events to flying to Illinois, Wisconsin and other states - all in an effort to learn best practices and to  help PAPERS grow and meet the needs of our public pension plans. The amazing part of traveling to other states is how many people have connections back in Pennsylvania and their unselfish desire to help us meet our goals.  As I visit the local government associations it is evident there is a thirst for basic knowledge for trustees of their fiduciary responsibility. It’s with a lot of pride I can tell them the answers to their questions can be found in PAPERS as we truly are the leader in trustee education, but we only get that way with your help and support.

 

Several of the members of the inaugural class in our new certification program have already completed the on-line courses, the first step toward certification, and have received a proof of completion certificate.   We are strongly encouraging everyone in the class to complete this step before our November Fall Workshop where enrollees enter the continuing education second step in the certification program.  We look forward to introducing those people to you so you can hear in their own words the value of papers new certificate program.  I hope to see you in Philadelphia in November!!
