Members-Only Federal Webinar

January 17 at 3:00 PM/EDT

Public pension boards are regularly presented with actuarial studies containing a myriad of numbers, assumptions and calculations.  Whether you are a brand-new board member or a seasoned veteran, the important task of deciphering these actuarial valuations can be a real challenge and making decisions based upon them can be one of the most daunting tasks with which trustees must grapple.

How do trustees, supported by their staff and outside consultants, balance competing obligations and pressures to arrive at the optimal outcome for their system and its beneficiaries?  It’s a tall order!

Fortunately, to help provide a basic educational framework regarding actuarial valuations for trustees and their advisors who work with public sector defined benefit pension plans, a new book has just been written by two public pension experts offering complimentary perspectives, and NCTR is delighted to begin 2019 with a webinar featuring them.

Therefore, be sure to join Leigh Snell, NCTR’s Director of Federal Relations, on Thursday, January 17, as he discusses this new publication and the important issues it covers with its two authors:

  • Leslie L. Thompson, a consulting actuary with Gabriel, Roeder, Smith & Company (GRS), which helped underwrite this project, and who has consulted on a variety of benefit design and actuarial funding issues for over 22 years, specializing in public sector funds; and
  • Pamela M. Feely, a CPA and owner of Feely Consulting, LLC, who is an expert on financial reporting and compliance in Colorado as well as a trustee on the Colorado Police and Fire pension trust, of which she is currently vice-chair.

Register now, as attendance is limited for this NCTR members-only webinar, and it promises to be a discussion you will not want to miss!


(Thursday) 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT
