2020 classes announced

CANCELLED

Statewide IT PEF Members,

PEF Leadership, in an effort to protect the health and safety of our members and staff, will be suspending the use of all PEF offices, including the Member Benefits Program building, for the next 30 days. In support of this action, the Statewide IT Committee will be canceling all of the training sessions currently scheduled for the upcoming exam. This includes both the study groups and the in-person training classes that had been scheduled in Region 8 and Region 10.

During the next 6 weeks, the committee will continue to monitor the status of the upcoming Civil Service exams.  Additionally we will be attempting to develop some alternate options for delivering test study materials. Keep an eye out for future emails.

While this situation is unfortunate, the committee believes it is in the best interest of all involved.

Be Safe.

James Desso – Chair, EBoard Member

New email update!

Statewide IT PEF Members,

While we know the exam applications are due by March 11, 2020, with the announcement of a special telephone town hall meeting scheduled for Wednesday evening March 11, at 7:00 p.m, we have decided to temporarily postpone opening the training class registrations.

President Wayne Spence will be discussing what PEF is doing to protect the communities where we live and our members who are on the front lines of fighting the COVID-19 virus. Email invites have been sent out to all PEF members who have registered a personal email addresses with PEF.

The Statewide IT Committee is concerned with keeping members informed while making the best decisions possible. We will still attempt to get our members training opportunities if possible and are currently in the process of rescheduling the class style registrations to open on 3/12/20 at 7:00 pm. We will continue to monitor the situation and will make adjustments as necessary.

Please keep an eye out for future emails.
