Join our friends from Capitol Weekly for PUBLIC PENSIONS, a conference in Sacramento on Thursday, February 11th. Can’t join in person? Tune in to The California Channel afterwards for a later showing.

There are more than 80 public pension funds in California, ranging from giants like CalPERS and CalSTRS to local funds operated by cities and counties. While critics call for changes to the system, labor seeks to protect a secure retirement system for their members. 

On February 11, Capitol Weekly and the UC Center, Sacramento will present PUBLIC PENSIONS, a day-long conference in Sacramento examining the state of California's public pension systems. 

The event will feature nearly two dozen pension liability experts, including former San Jose Mayor Chuck Reed, Cheryl Eason, CFO of CalPERS, Amy Brown, publisher of the Public Retirement Journal, John Bartel, president of Bartel Associates and Senator Richard Pan, Chair of the Senate Standing Committee on Public Employment and Retirement. California State Treasurer John Chiang will deliver the Keynote address.

PUBLIC PENSIONS will be held in Sacramento at the SBCTC Conference Center, and will be filmed for later broadcast by The California Channel.
