SDCERS Accepting Nominations for Trustee Elections

Date: Oct 07, 2010


Nominating Petitions have been mailed to all General, Police Safety and Retired Members in preparation for upcoming elections for three seats on the SDCERS Board of Administration.

Elections will be held for one of two General Member Trustee seats; the Police Safety Member Trustee seat; and the Retired Member Trustee Seat. The elected General Member Trustee will serve as a replacement for a recently vacated seat and will begin the term on the next regularly scheduled Board Meeting following the completion of the election. Both the new Police Safety and Retired Member Trustees will begin their terms on April 1, 2011.

Each election is held separately and only Members in each Member Classification of the specific Trustee seat may be nominated for that seat. Nominations are due Wednesday, October 27, 2010, no later than 5:00 p.m.  The nominating petition must be received by SDCERS via fax, e-mail or hand delivery by the deadline. Following the nomination deadlines, Members will receive election booklets from SDCERS with candidate information, and instructions on how to vote. If only one Member is nominated for any of the three seats, no election need be held, and therefore no booklet would be mailed to that Member group.

The winners of each election will be announced in December on the SDCERS web site.
