LAGERS has been monitoring the impact of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) in an effort to ensure we are proactively protecting the health and safety of our members, staff, and all we come in contact with. On Tuesday, lawmakers issued a request urging all advocacy groups to avoid the Capitol. In consideration of this request and of the welfare of our members, we have decided to cancel our Legislative Day, which was originally scheduled for Wednesday, March 18th.
We still encourage you to reach out to your elected officials either electronically or in-district asking for their continued support of your retirement system and LAGERS’ legislative initiatives. Below are links to supporting materials that you may find helpful when reaching out! LAGERS staff also plans to reach out to each of the offices in which we had planned visits to.
We appreciate your continued support and willingness to share the LAGERS story! At this time, all other LAGERS events are planned to be held as scheduled, but we are continuing to monitor information provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as well as the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services and will notify registered attendees of any additional changes or cancellations.
