Events

Our fortnightly FPS coffee mornings began at the start of lockdown in May 2020 as informal virtual sessions to allow FPS FRA practitioners and administrators to keep in touch and hear about topical pensions issues. 

The sessions have been increasingly popular with a cast list of around 142 at our last coffee morning on 31 October 2023. 

While the sessions are informal only and are not recorded, all available presentations have been collated below. 

If you do not already receive the meeting invitations and would like to join us, please email [email protected]. Please note that attendance at the coffee mornings is generally restricted to FPS practitioners and managers.
