PERAC offers a wide range of educational offerings throughout the calendar year. All members of the Massachusetts retirement community are welcome and encouraged to attend any of our sessions, especially retirement board members, administrators and staff.  

Minimum Training Required for Board Members

During each member's term on a retirement board, the member must complete 18 hours of training in order to continue serving beyond their current term. A minimum of three hours of training must be completed annually but no more than 9 hours may be credited in any one year. Members can attend more than 18 hours worth of training per term.
