The Voice for Public Pensions

NCPERS Service Provider Membership

As the largest trade association for public pension plans, an NCPERS membership provides unparalleled access to industry decision-makers and leaders from approximately 500 pensions and stakeholder organizations throughout the U.S. and Canada. Organized as a 501(c)(3) non-profit, we are a unique network of trustees, administrators, public officials, and investment professionals who collectively oversee approximately $4 trillion in retirement funds managed on behalf of seven million retirees and nearly 15 million active public servants. Industry service providers benefit from exclusive access to NCPERS leading educational conferences and networking events, year-round thought leadership opportunities, opportunities to speak at events, and much more.

NCPERS offer two core types of service provider memberships – Corporate and CorPERS. Additionally, our Emerging Manager membership is open to asset managers that are women, minority, disabled, and veteran-owned firms. Below find the benefits of each membership level.
