In 1955, a cadre of public retirement administrators came together in Baltimore, Maryland, to share information, best practices, and emerging issues. From this meeting, NASRA was formed, and the annual conference, held exclusively for members in early August each year, remains a highlight of the association.
The conference features leaders in the fields of retirement plan investment and administration covering a variety of subjects including investment management, world events applicable to the pension industry, the economy, human resources, trends, and more. (No conference sesssions or activities are sponsored by associate members.)
Held typically the last weekend in February or the first weekend in March, in Washington, DC, NASRA hosts retirement system directors and their staff for a Sunday afternoon of roundtable discussions and presentations. The following day, all NASRA members are invited to hear analysis, forecasts, and overviews of current federal legislative and regulatory activities.
