SCERA's long standing Board Education Policy encourages the Trustees of the Board to pursue continuing education to increase the knowledge they need to effectively carry out their fiduciary duties. Training may include conferences, courses, workshops or other similar events in areas such as investments, actuarial principles, plan governance, and retirement law. The recent enactment of AB 1519, effective January 1, 2013, requires Trustees to obtain at least 24 hours of education in the first two years of their term. The requirement also applies to every subsequent two-year period of service to the Board. View the 2016 Trustee Education Compliance Report.
