What Does it Mean for Me? Georgia's Education Requirement for Public Retirement System Trustees

In 2019, the state of Georgia passed legislation requiring each public retirement system trustee to complete appropriate education applicable to his or her fiduciary duties and obligations under the public retirement system. A trustee appointed or elected on or after July 1, 2019 will now be required to complete a minimum of 8 hours of education within one year of becoming a new trustee. Trustees appointed or elected before July 1, 2019, or who have served one or more years, will need to complete a minimum of 12 hours of continuing education every two years
