NCPERS Accredited Fiduciary (NAF) Program

The NCPERS Accredited Fiduciary (NAF) Program is now being offered to our members virtually! See details below.

The NCPERS Accredited Fiduciary (NAF) Program is a trustee accreditation program specifically designed and tailored for individuals involved in public pension governance. NAF divides plan governance, oversight and administration into four modules (see below). Each module delves into the fundamental components and strategies necessary for governing a public pension fund, allowing trustees and plan staff to walk away with the key competencies critical to fulfilling their fiduciary responsibilities.
Module 1 – Governance and the Board’s Role
Module 2 – Investment, Finance, and Accounting
Module 3 – Legal, Risk Management, and Communication
Module 4 – Human Capital
