Thank you to all who provided feedback on the MainePERS Draft Strategic Plan through the survey tool, public comment meeting, and individual meetings. We appreciate your participation and interest. We are in the process of reviewing the responses we received and making adjustments to the Plan.
A revised draft of the Plan will be posted on this site by July 7, 2022 and presented to the MainePERS Board of Trustees at its July 14 meeting. At that time, the Board will review the revised Draft Strategic Plan and provide feedback. We anticipate making a recommendation to the Board of Trustees to adopt a final version of the Strategic Plan at their August 11 meeting.
Once the MainePERS Strategic Plan is finalized and adopted, we look forward to operationalizing the plan and will provide annual updates on our progress.
Our lobby is open Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and our Reception staff are available to assist you. Masks are required to enter the foyer and lobby and hand sanitizer is also available. Our foyer remains open for limited-contact drop-off of materials using our secure drop-box.
Although our lobby is open, we are not hosting in-person meetings. Instead, we are offering on-site videoconference meetings with staff. The Reception staff will guide visitors through that process.
The best way to speak with a member of our staff or schedule a videoconference meeting is to contact us by phone at 207-512-3100 or send an email to [email protected]. Please include your name and phone number. For security reasons, please do not include your Social Security number in your message.
We continue to encourage the use of mail or secure email for most of your MainePERS business.
