As the new State Fiscal year begins, the PFRSNJ Board conducts formal reorganization at the July meeting. Ed Donnelly was once again voted as Chairman of the Board in a unanimous vote. This provides continuity of leadership during a crucial stage of the formal transfer process with the State Treasurer and Division of Investment. The Chair, Executive Director, and Chief Financial Officer provided a public update on the transition negotiation process. Substantial progress has been made in terms of finalizing a memorandum of understanding with the State on a number of discussion points. With the progress towards formal transfer, Board and Management attention is now centering on ensuring the PFRS ability to receive the fund assets.
