If you are interested in attending one of our popular retirement seminars, you can view the schedule and register online through the Member's Self-Service Portal (MSS).  If you haven't activated your account yet, we can help you do that.

APERS has already released our seminar schedule for the first half of 2020.  We started earlier this year because we're visiting more places and offering more sessions than ever.  We also plan to return to each corner of the state multiple time to give you more opportunities to attend one of these useful programs.  Another big difference this year is that you will need to log into your online account in the MSS portal to register for a seminar.  It's easy to activate your MSS account (if you haven't already), and it will give you access to many useful features besides seminar registration.

This year, we are offering four different seminar programs, each designed for members at different stages on their road to retirement.  You will find descriptions of each program, downloadable schedules, and links to instructions for setting up your MSS account and for registering for a seminar through MSS on our Seminar Page.

Even if you don't plan to attend a seminar this year, you should definitely activate your MSS account and explore all the things you can do there. For more information, check out our blog Setting Up Your Online APERS Account for a step-by-step set-up guide. If you run into difficulty, you can call APERS at (501) 682-7800 or (800) 682-7377 weekdays 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. for assistance.
