Board of Administration

SDCERS is governed by a 13-member Board of Administration, responsible for the prudent administration of retirement benefits for City, Port and Airport employees, and for overseeing the investment portfolio of the retirement system’s trust fund.

In 2004, the voters changed the composition of SDCERS' Board by amending Section 144 of the Charter of the City of San Diego. Effective April 1, 2005, the Board's composition is:

Board Composition

Board Composition Representation
7 Members Appointed by Mayor and confirmed by City Council
1 Active Fire Safety Member Elected by Active Fire Safety Members
1 Active Police Safety Member Elected by Active Police Safety Members
2 Active General Members Elected by Active General Members
1 Retired Member Elected by Retired Members
1 City management employee Appointed by Mayor

Appointed Board members serve four-year terms with a two-term (eight year) limit. Elected members serve four-year terms. The City management member serves for the period of employment in their position with the City of San Diego. The SDCERS Board meets six times a year, approximately every eight weeks, at 8:30 a.m. on Friday; the schedule is reset each January.  Meetings are open to the public and are held at 401 West A St., Suite 300, San Diego, CA 92101.
