In the Wake of Detroit: Public Pension Liabilities

Elizabeth K. Kellar, President and CEO of the Center for State and Local Government Excellence

Pensions have made national headlines in recent months, notably as part of the City of Detroit’s bankruptcy proceeding. In that case, pension liabilities were cited both as a cause of the City’s fiscal demise, and a factor in bankruptcy negotiations. In this session, panelists will discuss the Detroit case, and strategies that have been successfully employed for reducing liabilities in the State of Maryland and county pension systems.

Elizabeth Kellar, President and CEO of the Center for State and Local Government Excellence, Anne Gawthrop, Director of Legislative Affairs for the Maryland State Pension and Retirement System, and Kristin Barcak, Ten-year Financial Plan Project Manager for Baltimore City will discuss these issues at MACo’s Summer Conference in Ocean City, Maryland. This session, which is sponsored by the Maryland Association of Human Resources Officers will be held on Thursday, August 14, 2014 from 3:30 pm – 4:30 pm.
