PERA to Develop Five-Year Strategic Plan

PERA is in the beginning stages of a strategic planning process that will ultimately lead to a five-year strategic plan for PERA.

Developing our five-year strategic plan will be an active effort and we need each of you to help. The outcomes and the Plan will be actionable: We will use it as a tool for informed decision making and rely on it for setting priorities and developing our budgets. We will look to the plan to keep our focus on our main goals and priorities.

Over the course of the next few months we will solicit input and guidance from PERA staff, our Board and our many constituencies (members, retirees, employers, etc.) to help develop this roadmap.

This is a process that depends on everyone's participation. This is your plan. Everyone will help design it. Everyone will own it. Everyone will help implement it.
