Merry Christmas!

A #Pension is the most stable retirement option for #PublicEmployees who earn their benefits by contributing a portion of every paycheck to their retirement. Their hard-earned contributions are combined with their employer’s contributions and then that money is invested. After they retire, the worker receives their pension through a monthly benefit that will last for the rest of their life. These are your #Firefighters, #FirstResponders, #LawEnforcement, #Police, #Librarians, #Educators, and county and municipal workers such as water department personnel, street maintenance crews, and parks and recreation employees. They do so much for us. Let's do something for them. This holiday season, let your local public officials know that you support the work of public employees and you support #SecureRetirment. #TxLege #PensionPlan #PensionFund #ProtectPensions #Governance #MerryChristmas #HappyHolidays #HappyNewYear #ThankYou

Our Story

A small group of individuals, who were members of several Texas public employee retirement systems, formed Texas Association of Public Employee Retirement Systems (TEXPERS) in 1989 as a statewide voluntary nonprofit association to provide quality education to trustees, administrators, professional service providers and employee groups and associations engaged or interested in the management of public employee retirement systems. The Association provides the highest quality education and services to its participating retirement systems and affiliate members. By uniting Texas public pension systems, TEXPERS works for their common interests, monitors state and federal legislative activities and enhances professional fund management and administration. Over the past 30 years, TEXPERS system and associate membership has grown substantially.

I have an extra room for the conference if anyone needs it. It's from Friday, April 5 to Tuesday, April 9. Send me a message if you know someone who could use it. I hate to cancel it and lose the block rate.
