Colorado PERA will hold a second statewide series of conversations to provide stakeholders with more information after the Board of Trustees meet in late September to develop legislative recommendations to improve the funded status of the plan and preserve its sustainability.
This follows the first phase of PERAtour, which included a dedicated website, a telephone town hall, and a series of community meetings. Thousands of members, retirees, employers and the general public have participated in this process. More than 900 people attended one of the 12 meetings, where they had the opportunity to ask questions and provide input on the principles and priorities for the Board to consider as it developed its recommendations.
The second phase of the PERAtour will include the following activities:
Telephone Town Hall
Executive Director Greg Smith will hold an interactive telephone town hall on October 3. The meeting for retirees takes place at 2:00 p.m. and the one for active members happens at 7:00 p.m. For those who have previously registered their phone number, they will automatically be called and invited to participate. More information is available . A recording of both calls will be available online afterward.
The special website established to communicate about PERA’s funded status and educational efforts, www.peratour.org, will be continually updated with information and reporting from telephone and community meetings.
Community Outreach Tour
Throughout October and early November, PERA will be hosting meetings in 12 communities across the state. No reservation is required and everyone is invited to attend.
