On July 21–22, 2022, TCDRS hosted its 18th Annual Conference, reuniting with employers in-person at the AT&T Executive Education and Conference Center after hosting an all-virtual event in 2021.
The team welcomed 315 attendees, who represented 141 unique TCDRS employers. “The conference was a tremendous success,” says TCDRS Employer Services Director Kim Kizer. “It was such an honor to host our employers in-person once again. It was like seeing family after a couple of years.”
Paperless by 2023
During the event, TCDRS Executive Director Amy Bishop announced TCDRS’ initiative to go paperless by 2023 to increase the efficiency, flexibility and security of TCDRS processes and empower employers and their employees with more seamless account management.

TCDRS Chief Investment Officer Casey Wolf provided a breakdown of TCDRS’ impressive 22% investment return for 2021 and Milliman Actuary Matt Larrabee explained how TCDRS’ responsible funding structure gives the system the strength and stability to weather any storm.
“Employers were hungry for the good news that we had to share about our financial strength,” Amy says. “In a world where news, markets, politics and climates are volatile, many commented on how wonderful it was to hear about our strong funding and performance.”
“One employer told us, ‘That was just what I needed to hear,’” she adds.
Please save the dates for next year’s event, which will take place at the AT&T Executive Education and Conference Center on July 20–21, 2023. We look forward to seeing you there!
