Nomination forms are now available on the TRS website for two upcoming employee representative vacancies on the TRS Board of Trustees. One seat will be filled by a retiree, and the other is open to an active or retired TRS member.

(Former TCTA State President Dolores Ramirez holds one of the two current active employee spots on the Board; her term ends in 2019.)

An individual wishing to run must obtain signatures from 250 TRS members and submit the signed petitions to TRS by Jan. 20, 2017. The elections will be held between March 15 and May 5, 2017, and the governor will select the trustees from among the top three vote-getters in each race.

Active members cannot sign the petition for the retiree seat, but can sign for either an active member or a retiree running for the at-large seat.

To obtain a petition form, members can print the form from the TRS website or call 800-223-8778, extension 2702. Further instructions are included on the form.
