Mayor Bernard appoints Beverly Cooper to the Retirement Board

In November 2020, Mayor Thomas Bernard appointed Beverly Cooper to the North Adams Retirement Board.  Beverly is currently the Treasurer for the City of North Adams. Many of our members are familiar with Beverly, prior to being the Treasurer, she was the Administrator to the North Adams Retirement Board from 2005 to 2012.   This will be quite an asset to the Board as she can use her knowledge of the System, and bring her experience as a Board Administrator to the table.  Welcome Beverly. We look forward to your enrollment with the Board.
