Nominations for PFRSNJ Trustee Reps certified by PFRSNJ Board

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.

With the progress towards formal transfer, Board and Management attention is now centering on ensuring the PFRS ability to receive the fund assets.
