Cynthia Y. Rougeou, Executive Director of the Louisiana State Employees’ Retirement System (LASERS), has been named President Elect of the Executive Board by members of the National Association of State Retirement Administrators (NASRA).
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 $2 trillion in assets and that provide pension and other benefits to more than two-thirds of all state and local government employees.
Rougeou assumes the new position after serving as first Vice President of the Executive Board. Previously, she was Second Vice President of the Executive Board and prior to that, NASRA’s Region 4 Vice President, which includes Louisiana, Arkansas, Texas, Oklahoma, Missouri, Colorado, New Mexico, and Kansas.
“I am honored to be a part of NASRA and their mission to support and assist other public pension systems around the country,” said Rougeou. “In these challenging times, it is vital to communicate with decision makers about the importance of a sound public retirement system. NASRA provides the resources to assist in achieving this critical goal.”
