Fire and Police Local Pension Board Governance - London - Wednesday 9 May 2018

The Fire and Police Scheme Advisory Boards with the National Police Chiefs Council (NPCC) are holding a joint event at the LGA Offices in Smith Square, London, SW1 on 9 May 2018 to review, pre-publication, the outputs from this year’s TPR Governance and Administration Survey. We would be delighted if you can attend.

As well as receiving a briefing from the Pensions Regulator on the survey results for both fire and police schemes, delegates will have an opportunity to network with colleagues and share experiences of operating Local Pension Boards over the past two to three years.

We hope the event will focus Local Pension Boards on priorities for their workplans and help identify further opportunities to add value in assisting Scheme Managers.

This free to attend session is aimed at Local Pension Board chairs, Local Pension Board members, Scheme Managers and industry experts. A draft programme is attached.

We look forward to welcoming you to the event.

We are pleased to invite you to participate in the above free event being held at the LGA offices at 18 Smith Square, London on Wednesday 2 May 2018, from 10:00 to 15:00.

The session is aimed at scheme managers, HR professionals, pension practitioners and software providers.
