The Voice for Public Pensions

About the HR Summit

NCPERS Public Pension HR Summit was established to address the unique workforce challenges the public pension industry faces. Bringing together public pension human resources professionals and administrators for three days of networking, peer-to-peer learning, and hands-on training with industry experts, this annual event will equip you with the knowledge and resources needed to navigate the complexities of public sector HR. 

To ensure relevancy to your organization’s needs, the program is developed in collaboration with NCPERS HR Roundtable (formerly PSHRA’s HR Public Pension Roundtable Executive Committee). Program directors, listed below, shape the agenda to address the key issues impacting public pension HR professionals today.



Public pension HR professionals, administrators, and staff with a focus on public sector pension administration looking to enhance their understanding of HR-related challenges and solutions in the public sector.

In order to facilitate open dialogue, this program is exclusively open to public pension professionals. Service provider members are not eligible to attend the educational programming.  



Attending the Public Pension HR Summit is a strategic investment in your professional growth and the success of your organization. The HR Summit offers an exclusive opportunity to gain valuable insights, exchange ideas, and build connections with your peers. Engage in in-depth workshops, participate in thought-provoking discussions, and hear from keynote speakers at the forefront of public pension HR.
