Intended for experienced trustees, the NAF Program is an accreditation trustee program specifically designed and tailored for public pension governance. NAF divides plan governance, oversight and administration into four modules. Each module delves into the fundamental components and strategies necessary for governing a public pension fund, allowing trustees and plan staff to walk away with the key competencies critical to their fiduciary responsibilities.
The four modules; Module 1 – Governance and the Board’s Role, Module 2 – Investment, Finance and Accounting, Module 3 – Legal, Risk Management and Communication and, Module 4 – Human Capital; are offered in sets of two as preprograms for both the Annual Conference & Exhibition and the Public Safety Employees Pension & Benefits Conference. More details on each module can be seen in the attached document. Upon successful completion of all requirements and receipt of a passing grade on examination, NAF participants will receive an official NCPERS accreditation to showcase their achievement.
