Sweet relief for our trusted public servants enduring the rigors of NCPERS 2007 at the Waikiki Hilton in Honolulu, Hawaii. They should have completed Part II of the "Manager Challenge". I'll bet that's a load off their minds. Now they only have to spend a couple more hours getting through the ""DB/DC Discussion Panel", "Legal Issues Facing Trustees", and "Presentation of Continuing Education Certificates".
I'm pretty sure that last one really isn't a training topic but an actual presentation of a continuing education certificate to each of our city and county public pension fund officials in attendance. Quite an honor. Could you blame any of them for wanting to celebrate their graduation with a beach party when class is out at 1:00 p.m.? I for one will not be so churlish.
