A letter from the Executive Director: It has been some time since I shared an open letter with our members, retirees, beneficiaries, and other stakeholders. With the conclusion of the Decennial Commission in January 2018, and of our most recent fiscal year on June 30, I thought a look back at the significant changes made to NHRS over the past 10-plus years would be worthwhile. Overall, the retirement system is in a much better position today than it was a decade ago, however, our journey is far from over.
