Serving California Together

The 19th annual Educational Forum in Indian Wells, October 22-24 is about the people we serve together, CalPERS members. Our employees, friends, and family members – those who've chosen a career in public service...

  • Bringing clean water and electricity to our homes
  • Operating schools that educate our children
  • Providing vital services that keep our cities and counties running
  • Keeping us safe 24 hours a day, seven days a week

... these are the people who serve California. They've earned their pension and health benefits, and it's our shared responsibility to deliver on the promise of retirement security for now and future generations to come.

Because they're worth it.

  • Attend customized learning sessions
  • Connect one-on-one with CalPERS experts
  • Discuss priority issues facing your organization
  • Earn Continuing Education Credit
  • Meet CalPERS leaders
  • Network with colleagues from around the state
