For many of us, the topic of public pension systems may not seem relevant to our daily lives. The purpose of the 2011 Public Conference was to explain why public pension systems are important to all of us, both as beneficiaries of the services that public employees provide and as taxpayers who are ultimately responsible for the promises we make to those who serve the public interest.
As a complement to the 2011 Public Conference, the Texas Lyceum Journal is comprised of several relevant articles from participants in the conference and others with unique expertise in the subject area. In addition to these articles, the entire Conference can be watched on the internet by visiting http://www.vimeo.com/album/1572109.
Thank you to our very generous sponsors for allowing the Lyceum to present a conference of this magnitude on such an important, timely topic. A full listing of these sponsors can be found on the back cover of the Journal.
