TIPS FOR MAKING SUCCESSFUL PRESENTATIONS TO THE EMPLOYEES’ RETIREMENT FUND.

  • State your name and address at the start of your presentation.

  • If your point has been made by previous speakers, you may inform the Chairperson that you do not need to speak because your point has been raised.

  • Visual aids, other than handouts, are not allowed.  If you choose to use a handout, 18 copies of any handout must be provided to staff prior to the presentation. Employees’ Retirement Fund is subject to the Texas Public Information Act and information you present to the Board may be requested by the public in accordance with the Act.

  • Address your remarks to the entire Board, rather than a specific member.
