We are excited to welcome you back to our first in-person Trustee School since January, 2020. Whether working towards your CPPT designation or earning continuing education credits, here’s your chance to continue your educational journey as a trustee. Join us for a two and half day event of lectures and panel discussions that cover everything from retirement insecurity in America, to legislation, and the funding, actuarial, legal, and investment issues your board should know about in the coming months and years.

Trustees starting the CPPT program in BASIC must first complete the Pension Fundamentals for New Trustees program. (Scroll down for more details about this new virtual program).

CPPT: Because of the nature of virtual learning, we will be hosting one CPPT track at a time. Each track will consist of a full day virtual program followed by a review session and an exam the following day; Because this program includes a Study Guide that is needed in order to take the exam, the registration deadline will be October 8th — We will not be able to accommodate late registrations. Please provide an accurate mailing address so the study guide can be mailed to you.

On-Going Event

Pension Fundamentals for New Trustees


Virtual Event – This is an on-going event that can be taken at any time. 
Pension Fundamentals for New Trustees: $150

This new program is intended to be a primer for a new trustee walking into their role on the pension board. This one day virtual program will cover the various roles people play in the pension system, give a run down of how a defined benefit plan works, and familiarize a new trustee with the language, players, and lay of the land they’ll come to know in their new role. In addition to this program, participants will receive access to a digital reference book full of useful information for trustees no matter their experience level. This program does not offer CEU credits. This program is a requirement for any trustee intending to enroll in the CPPT Program —  trustees must complete this program before entering into the Basic CPPT course.
