(4/30/13) - As of today, all travel expense reimbursement requests for the NCPERS Annual Conference scheduled in Hawaii have been withdrawn by the members who requested the travel. We have informed the legislature of this development.
While we still believe in the educational value of this conference, the travel issue has become a major distraction to the important work we do for members and retirees. The actions that legislators took yesterday would significantly impair the work SERS Board and staff does and we hope that by withdrawing the travel we can avoid these restrictions.[Read More...]
As a Board, we have significant decisions to make regarding investments in the next few months and we will do our best to keep SERS well-funded for the future. We appreciate the comments we have received from members and retirees, and we ask for your continued support as we move forward in governing SERS.
