A Message from ICMA-RC President and CEO Joan McCallen
Founded by the public sector for the public sector more than 40 years ago, our unwavering support of local and state government employers and employees uniquely qualifies us to deliver on our mission of building retirement security. We are committed to providing the highest quality products, services, and education to the public sector.
Our commitment to the public sector includes recognizing those who serve our communities. The ICMA-RC Vantagepoint Public Employee Memorial Scholarship Fund is one way we honor those who serve. Since inception, we have awarded close to $900,000 in scholarships to the children and spouses of firefighters, police officers, and other government employees who have made the ultimate sacrifice.
We further our mission and work with communities through the Center for State and Local Government Excellence, which we founded in 2007. The Center actively engages state and local governments through research and practicums that contribute to supporting the 21st century public sector workforce.
ICMA-RC offers services and products to help local and state employees achieve their retirement goals, including flexible, tax-advantaged retirement savings programs such as 457 and 401 plans, retiree health savings plans, and IRAs — each with a wide variety of investment options. Working closely with our clients, we also create award-winning educational tools and resources, having received more than 100 awards and recognition since 2007 for successful education and communications initiatives.
We look forward to serving you by providing high-quality client services, comprehensive investment options, and extensive educational resources as we strive to deliver on our mission of helping public sector employees build retirement security.
