10TH ANNIVERSARY OF LATEC INVESTMENT EDUCATION SYMPOSIUM 

"The purpose of the Louisiana Trustee Education Council (LATEC) shall be to encourage and facilitate the education of its membership in all matters related to their duties as the holders of trust assets by those bearing a fiduciary responsibility for such assets. Therefore, LATEC will develop and conduct educational programs and networking opportunities among trustees, administrators and staffs of pension funds designed to foster and maintain the level of expertise demanded of fiduciaries under applicable law, so that they may better serve their members and their respective (pension) funds."

The above "Mission Statement" was drafted approximately ten years ago by the three founders of LATEC. The goal then, and still is today, the fostering and nurturing of trustee education, just as the name of the organization suggests. The 10th Anniversary of LATEC speaks to the history, success and dedication of the LATEC organization and its membership! This is not just a testament to the success of the Investment Education Symposium, but more importantly, to the dedication of pubic funds trustees, systems' administrators/staffs, and to LATEC's Business Members and their commitment to trustee education. This year's 10th Anniversary event builds on that accomplishment, as the goal of trustee education moves forward, with LATEC at the helm to continue that proud history!

LATEC sponsored education credits available for this event:
(8) hours of Investment Training
(1) hours of actuarial science information
(2) hours of fiduciary duty and ethics
