August 9, 2002

Coming to an Area Near You - WRS Regional Training Sessions

Mark your calendar for Wisconsin Retirement System (WRS) employer training for local government employers and school districts. These free ETF-sponsored workshop/training sessions are set for 15 cities around Wisconsin from mid-September through mid-November.

Please note that separate sessions are scheduled for local government entities and school districts. Workshop dates and locations are listed at the end of this Bulletin.

These workshops are your chance to review, discuss, and practice WRS Administration Manual policies and procedures. Please bring your Manual for reference and use during workshop learning opportunities. Workshop attendees will review key areas in WRS administration. Topics include: determining employee participation eligibility, rehired annuitants, employee transaction reporting, annual reporting and reconciliation, and more.

Workshop activities are designed to give attendees a hands-on learning experience and a chance to interact with others whose jobs include daily WRS operational duties. Those responsible for determining eligibility and completing employee transaction reports are encouraged to attend.

There will be two sessions at each location. The first day at each location will be for local government employers, day two will be for school districts. Class size is limited and you must pre-register for these sessions. You can register by calling Don Stuckert, Employer Education Officer @ (608) 266-0133, by e-mail:, by either faxing the attached registration form to (608) 266-5801, or by mailing it to:
