FPPTA Mentorship Program

2024 marks the FPPTA’s 40th year providing education to public pension trustees in the state of Florida. Over those years the organization has grown from a few sessions and couple dozen attendees to what it is today. The growth of the organization speaks volumes of the dedication and professionalism of Florida’s pension boards, but we know it is a lot to take in for newcomers as they navigate their role as a trustee and the resources the FPPTA has to offer. The names and friendly faces above have generously offered their assistance to be your helping hand. These veteran trustees have been coming to FPPTA events for years and can provide insight, guidance, and be there to answer any questions you may have. We encourage you to reach out to them in the halls or by email/phone to say hello and to seek them out should you run into any issues. The FPPTA is a tremendous community, and we are so glad to have you be a part of it.
