As part of the Association’s mission to help public employees secure retirement, this year’s theme is “Strengthen Pension: Together We Can.” State-mandated training programs and public employee retirement management sessions are offered at the Annual Conference. Participants will be able to learn about industry trends, gain new skills, and establish new connections during the event.

This year's conference features a networking golf tournament, membership receptions, keynote speakers, a motivational speaker, breakout panel discussions, a member's event, and roundtable discussions during which members will get to discuss pressing topics with peers and experts.

An early-morning golf tournament kicks the conference off on Sunday, April 2. The rest of the day is free until a 5:30 p.m. welcome reception. TEXPERS' pension funds may attend the association's Annual Business Meeting at 3 p.m. 

The conference continues Monday, April 3, with general sessions starting at 8 a.m. A members’ event will be held that evening at Punch Bowl Social, an Austin “scratch-to-table dining and couture gaming” destination. 

General sessions continue from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on day three of the conference, Tuesday, April 4. There will be a reception at 5 p.m. The last day of the conference, Wednesday, April 5, features a half-day of general sessions.

A Look Back at Last Year's Annual Conference

Basic and Advanced Trustee Training

TEXPERS members looking to fulfill state-mandated Basic and Advanced training requirements may do so the day before the Annual Conference starts on Saturday, April 1. 

Basic Trustee Training is for new trustees and provides seven hours of training over seven content areas from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. The registration fee is $225 for TEXPERS member retirement systems and employee group members and is $325 for non-member retirement systems.  

Advanced Trustee Training is for more seasoned trustees who have taken Basic Trustee Training or another training program covering the same content. Advanced Trustee Training is different every time it is held and offers a deep dive into various topics. The April 1 class runs from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
