Inaugural Program for Advanced Trustee Studies a Success
August 14, 2007
The Inaugural Program for Advanced Trustee Studies recently wrapped up in Cambridge, MA. The Program, which was developed in partnership with the
Labor & Worklife Program at Harvard Law School and held there July 26-27, brought together nearly 50 seasoned public pension fund trustees from
across the nation for an intensive two-day course of study on trustee ethics and emerging investment strategies.
Faculty for the program included Dr. Tessa Hebb, Senior Research Associate at the Labor & Worklife Program and the Oxford
University Centre for the Environment; Gordon L. Clark, the Halford Mackinder Professor of Geography and a Professorial Fellow at St. Peter's College
at Oxford University; Dr. Larry Beeferman, Director of the Pensions and Capital Stewardship Project at the Labor and Worklife Program; James Beall,
a partner in the law firm of Willig, Williams & Davidson; and Dr. Elizabeth Keating, a Visiting Assistant Professor at the Carroll School of
Management at Boston College. The faculty led sessions on socially responsible investing and a case study of ethical issues related to the pension
troubles in San Diego.
NCPERS is pleased with the overall interest in the Program and the avid participation by the attending trustees. We look forward to providing an even better Program for Advanced Trustee Studies next year.
