Help guide the direction of NCTR!

NCTR is your association.  One of the best ways to be involved is to serve on an NCTR committee (Special or Standing). Please note: Committee service is available to Active Members only (that is, the state, city, and local retirement systems).

If you signed up for a committee while at the NCTR Annual Conference held in La Jolla, CA this past October, thank you!  We have your name on file and there’s no need to sign up again.

For those of you who have yet to consider serving on a committee, NCTR has extended the deadline to Monday, November 23. While we cannot guarantee that everyone will find a spot on his or her requested committee, our goal is to place as many as we can!

The following NCTR Committees available for your participation are:

  • Legislative Committee: With the concurrence of the President and the Executive Committee, the Legislative Committee shall engage in activities that include the development and implementation of strategies to promote or oppose legislative or executive branch decisions or proposals. This Committee meets in person twice a year and may meet more as needed.  Administrators, Trustees and pension fund staff may serve on this Committee.

  • Resolutions Committee:  Working in conjunction with NCTR staff, the Resolutions Committee is responsible for notifying all member systems that it is requesting the submission of “In Memoriam,” “In Appreciation,” and “Policy” Resolutions (Continuing, New, and Amended).  The committee reviews the submissions and presents them to the member delegates at the Annual Business Meeting. This Committee meets in person before the Annual Conference and as needed throughout the year.
