Pension Systems’ Response & Communications Relating to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Pandemic

During this challenging time, we strive to continue to promote engagement, cooperation and partnerships to help our member systems achieve retirement security for educators and other public employees. Therefore, we have created a collaborative resource page within the NCTR website for our member systems to submit materials they are using in connection with the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic (I.e. Member Communications, Messages to Employees, Messages to Employers, Changes to Operating Procedures, etc.).

If your system would like to provide examples of materials being used, please submit them to Although the page is password protected, please submit only those materials you would not have a problem with the general public potentially accessing.

June Workshops & System Directors’ Meeting Cancelled  

Dear NCTR Members,

We are closely monitoring the national impact of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. While the situation is quickly developing, we are focusing on how to best serve the needs of our membership, while keeping the health and safety of our members as a priority.

We have decided it is in the best interest of our members to cancel the June Workshops and System Directors’ Meeting scheduled in Madison, WI.  We are currently determining the possibility of making necessary adjustments to other upcoming events, as well. Once decisions are made, we will provide you an update in a timely manner.

We hope that you remain safe and healthy as we continue to work together during this time. Please contact me if you have any questions or would like to share any information with us. I am currently telecommuting so please feel free to contact me via cell phone at the number below until further notice.
