National Conference on Public Employee Retirement Systems

The Voice for Public Pensions

Trustee Educational Seminar (TEDS)

The Trustee Educational Seminar (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.
By signing up for TEDS, trustees can build and strengthen their foundational knowledge of pensions and governance. This two-day program is designed with a clear focus on the educational needs of trustees who are relatively new to a pension plan board. The focus is on investing principles, board policies, and fundamental concepts that every trustee should know.
The second day of TEDS features the Asset Allocation Challenge, an interactive computer-based investment training exercise. Members are placed in groups and asked to select assets based on the given economic environment presented to them. This program is ideal for new trustees and can be repeated.
TEDS attendees can earn up to eight (9.5) hours of continuing education credits.
It is recommended that trustees interested in earning their NCPERS Accredited Fiduciary (NAF) accreditation take TEDS first.



NCPERS is continuously monitoring information and following all guidelines recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and local health agencies regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19). Therefore, with the health and safety for all our members in mind, we have decided to cancel the in-person 2021 Annual Conference (unless current conditions change). 

Please stay tuned for more information on future dates for this conference.



In an effort to be environmentally conscious, NCPERS will no longer print marketing materials. All information regarding this program will be sent via email.
