LPB annual wrap-up training 2019 - London - 18 June 2019

Twenty delegates from across the FPS governance community attended the popular annual LPB wrap-up training event held at 18 Smith Square on 18 June 2019.

In the session led by Claire Hey, attendees received a whistle-stop tour of the background to the Firefighters’ Pension Schemes and funding, followed by an overview of the roles and responsibilities of those involved in governance – the Scheme Advisory Board (SAB), scheme manager, and Local Pension Boards (LPBs). Malcolm Eastwood, chair of the SAB, was also on hand to provide input on the current work of the Board.

We were joined in the afternoon by The Pensions Regulator, to provide the headline results from the 2018 Governance and Administration survey in relation to FPS. This summary provided an ideal basis for the following session, which considered next steps LPBs could take to become more effective and signposted resources available to assist boards. The event concluded with a look at current and future issues affecting the schemes.
