National Conference on Public Employee Retirement Systems

The Voice for Public Pensions

Trustee Educational Seminar (TEDS)

The Trustee Educational Seminar (TEDS) is a pre-conference program held in conjunction with the Annual Conference & Exhibition. TEDS is intended for new and novice trustees who are seeking a better understanding of their role and responsibilities as trustee of their pension fund. It also serves as a refresher for experienced trustees interested in staying up-to-date.

This two-day program provides an introduction to fiduciary responsibilities, creating a solid foundation of knowledge for those who have limited experience in pension plan trusteeship. Program content is designed to address the critical elements of trust fund management including, important topics such as investing, legal requirements and trustee ethics.

TEDS attendees earn eight (8) hours of continuing education (CE) credits.

It is recommended that trustees interested in earning their NCPERS Accredited Fiduciary (NAF) accreditation take TEDS first.
