2019 Legislative Day - The Importance of the LAGERS Retirement System

Last week, LAGERS members from every corner of the state gathered in Jefferson City to visit with lawmakers about the importance of their LAGERS retirement system! It was an action-packed day, full of tons of great visits with our state lawmakers.  Here are a few of the highlights!
