LAGERS Policy Framework

What We Believe

LAGERS fundamentally believes in the value of the time, talent, and services our members return to communities across the state, and acknowledges that without skilled workers in these public offices, our state and local community could not efficiently function or provide the high caliber services Missouri taxpayers expect. LAGERS strives to give a voice to our public workers, and to further protect and promote issues on their behalf that impact their present and future financial and retirement security.

How We Develop Policy

LAGERS seeks to engage and collaborate with our stakeholders in the development of LAGERS policy objectives.  We regularly seek input from our members, employers, retirees, state associations partners, and policy makers through listening sessions, advocacy events, association events, legislative advisory committee meetings, and more.
