Online program featuring abbreviated sessions from CALAPRS popular annual program for new public pension fund trustees


Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and restrictions on gatherings in California, the in-person Principles of Pension Governance for Trustees program held at Pepperdine University has been postponed until 2021. While this was not an easy decision to make, the health and safety of our participants is of the utmost importance.


However, to continue CALAPRS’ mission of providing education for trustees during these unprecedented times, we have arranged with our faculty of subject-matter experts to present abbreviated versions of several key educational topics from this program in an online format in August 2020.


All course materials are based on actual California public pension fund law, policies, practices and problems.
