Conference Networking Events

While the main focus of the Thirteenth Annual Conference is to provide quality fiduciary education to Georgia's public retirement system trustees, it also serves as a forum for the discussion of benefit plan issues. The GAPPT encourages all participants to attend the conference networking activities to meet and share ideas with fellow trustees and staff members.
