Workshops on Retirement & Financial Management

The PERSI Training Department has expanded workshop opportunities and is working directly with employers to engage members earlier in their careers.

We will work with your organization to set up a morning or afternoon session at your location. Together, we can identify and deliver the workshop(s) best suited to your staff:

READY... (New career employees, 1 hour.) SET? (Mid-career employees, 1 hour.) GO! (Late career employees, 2 hours.)

It is our goal to visit every county in Idaho at least once a year. For those counties closer to Boise, (Ada, Boise, Canyon, Elmore, Gem, Owyhee and Payette), a trainer will be available weekly.

Please see the schedule on the PERSI website to see when PERSI will be in your county, and get signed up. Then, a PERSI trainer will contact you to make arrangements and accommodate as many employers as we can. We also invite you to contact us with your request (select "Workshops" as the subject to your e-mail).
