National Conference on Public Employee Retirement Systems

The Voice for Public Pensions

Chief Officers Summit

NCPERS is proud to unveil its Chief Officers Summit!
This program is the culmination of extensive research and engagement with our membership and builds upon the successful launch of the CIO Summit in June 2018. The Chief Officers Summit fills the needs of CIOs and CEOs—particularly of mid-market plans—to learn, network, and share with their peers.

This program features dual tracks for CIOs and CEOs. Both participant-driven programs focus on the distinct challenges mid-market plans face and provide plan executives the opportunity to collaboratively work together in solutions-focused small group discussions. The agendas, created by advisory faculties of CIO and CEO peers, will feature unique sessions not typically covered at a pension focused conference.

The Chief Officers Summit will feature:
  • A target audience of chief officers from funds with assets between $2 billion and $60 billion.
  • CIO and CEO Summit agendas developed by advisory faculties of peers.
  • Solutions-focused group discussions after each general session.
  • Limited attendees to promote active participation and discussion.
  • Educational tracks closed to marketers from the vendor community.
