What is LAGERS Annual Meeting?
LAGERS Annual Meeting is where LAGERS Board of Trustees elections occur. As an active member or governing body member, this is your opportunity to have your voice heard by participating in LAGERS Board of Trustee elections. As a voting delegate, you will have the opportunity to hear about the role of the LAGERS board, meet and get to know those who are seeking nominations and election to the LAGERS board and submit your vote for a nominee.
There are two types of delegates who can vote in the board election. One type is the Member Delegate who must be an active LAGERS member elected by the active membership of their political subdivision. The other type is the Employer Delegate who can either be a governing body member of a LAGERS covered subdivision or a staff person appointed by the governing body. To participate in the board elections, the delegates will need to be present at the annual meeting during the LAGERS Business Meeting.
Does the Annual Meeting Provide System Updates?
Yes. At the LAGERS Annual Meeting, you will hear from LAGERS leadership and staff about the funding progress of the system, an update on the investment portfolio, and an update about the previous and next legislative sessions. In addition, there are also educational sessions with a variety of topics. Stay tuned for an updated agenda to see all of the updates and educational sessions provided at the Annual Meeting.
Do I have to be a voting attendee to attend the system updates & educational sessions?
No. You may attend as a non-voting attendee.
