Part One: An Overview of the Legal Aspects of Pension Fund Administration
Carolyn Welch Clifford, Ottosen Britz will give you an overview of the legal authority and State oversight of firefighter pension funds, as well as an introduction to fund membership and legal aspects of the control and management of the fund. A short overview of the legal issues in benefit administration and funding will also be addressed.

Lt. J.D. Bruchsaler, Park Ridge Firefighters’ Pension Fund and veteran pension fund trustee will provide a firsthand account of the responsibilities for administering a pension fund, from learning your role as trustee to what has worked (and not worked) in overseeing responsibilities as a trustee and fiduciary to the fund. A focus on the importance of communication with the membership, as well as the municipality and union, will also be explored.
This program is made possible in partnership with Illinois Fire Sprinkler Coalition, who would like to congratulate the Manhattan Fire Protection District on successfully amending fire code to include unincorporated parts of the county.
