Rougeou Named First Vice President on National Association of State Retirement Administrators (NASRA) Board

Baton Rouge – Cynthia Y. Rougeou, Executive Director of the Louisiana State Employees’ Retirement System (LASERS), has been named first Vice President of the Executive Board by members of the National Association of State Retirement Administrators (NASRA).

Rougeou assumes the new position after serving as second Vice President of the Executive Board. Previously, she was Vice President for NASRA’s Region 4 which includes Louisiana, Arkansas, Texas, Oklahoma, Missouri, Colorado, New Mexico and Kansas.

NASRA is a non-profit association whose members are the directors of the nation’s state, territorial, and largest statewide public retirement systems. NASRA members oversee retirement systems that hold more than two-thirds of the more than $2 trillion in state and local government assets, and that provide pension and other benefits to most state and local government employees.

“NASRA provides a strong voice on behalf of public pension systems across the nation,” said Rougeou. “I am proud to be associated with this organization, and am dedicated to the important mission that drives its work. We will continue to provide assistance and support to our members, and communicate with decision makers about the importance of a sound public retirement system.”
