2017 Election to the PERA Board of Trustees

On January 10, 2017, the PERA Board adopted a resolution calling for nominations for one state member position and one municipal member position.  Each position has a four-year term to begin January 1, 2018. 

PERA Board members are fiduciaries to the various PERA funds and must prudently administer the retirement systems for the sole and exclusive benefit of PERA members, retirees and beneficiaries.
