The Ambassador Program is a public education campaign that informs active and retired members about CalPERS business so they can educate their communities.

Ambassadors are volunteers. They aren't paid or asked to lobby on behalf of CalPERS. We encourage Ambassadors to stay informed and share their own stories about public service whenever and wherever they're comfortable.

Subscribe to our Ambassador Program Newsletter to learn the best practices for communicating facts about pensions.
