At LACERA, we strive to be a premier retirement system as we service one of the largest retirement populations in the United States. We are viewed as industry leaders for our administrative practices, innovative strategies, advanced technological applications, and general expertise.

LACERA encourages learning. In order to best service our members, we believe it is important for staff, management, and Board members to be up-to-date on retirement-related issues and information. We attend, participate, and support other county and state-wide retirement associations; giving presentations regarding investments, benefits, communications, legal issues, and as volunteer officers and members of our strategic partner’s boards and committees.

We acknowledge and celebrate our individual and collective accomplishments. This page honors the accomplishments of Team LACERA.

LACERA Board Member Shawn Kehoe Recognized as NACD Board Leadership Fellow

In January, LACERA announced that Board of Retirement Member and Board of Investments Vice Chair Shawn Kehoe had been recognized by the National Association of Corporate Directors (NACD) as an NACD Board Leadership Fellow, Gold Standard Director Credential.

As the highest standard of credentialing for directors and governance professionals, the NACD Fellowship is a comprehensive and continuous program of study that empowers fellows with the latest insights, intelligence, and leading boardroom practices. NACD Fellows serve on the boards of some of the world’s largest and most diverse corporations, including heavy hitters like Citigroup, DuPont, IBM, Lockheed Martin, Microsoft, Nordstrom, and UnitedHealth Group.

“I am honored to join the distinguished and diverse group of individuals who make up the NACD Fellow community and who are committed to advancing the highest standards of boardroom excellence,” said Kehoe. “The resources, insights, and connections I’ve made through the NACD Fellowship will be key assets to LACERA, as well as to my professional growth as a director.”

LACERA a Seasoned Participant in Volunteer Day at the Food Bank

On June 3, 2017, more than 40 LACERA staff, family, and friends reported for duty at the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank to participate in LACERA’s 2nd Annual Employee Volunteer Day. The team worked together to help sort and package 2,540 bags of food for more than 11,000 low-income seniors in Los Angeles County. The bags of food consisted of canned fruit and vegetables, rice, cereal, and other nonperishable food items. It was a great success; we look forward to volunteering again next year.
