The Colorado Public Employees Retirement Association, Denver, has created an online museum to mark its 75th anniversary.
Found at www.copera.org, the exhibit includes staff photos and facts from each decade in the $38.2 billion system's history. The chronology begins in 1931, when the Colorado General Assembly instituted the plan; it had 1,400 members and $63,000 in assets. The museum also points to notable investment management events such a state law being relaxed in 1969 to allow the fund to put up to 30% of assets in equities and a hybrid pension plan being established in 1995.
The museum, which will be live on the PERA website until July 31, is "a really great trip down memory lane," said Katie Kaufmanis, PERA spokeswoman.
