Nominations Open Now Through June 4
For 2023, four seats will be open on the Board of the Fort Worth Employees’ Retirement Fund:
Place 1, representing active police officers;
Place 3, representing active general employees in Group C;
Place 5, representing retired firefighters;
Place 7, representing retired general employees.
To make a nomination, you must be an eligible member of the group represented. Nominees for Places 1 and 3 also must be vested. Nominations can be made online or by signing a traditional paper petition. Members also can nominate themselves. Please note that any nominations from previous years are not applicable, and you will need to make a new nomination for this year.
All online nominations and paper petitions must be received by the Fund by 4 p.m. Friday, June 9. Voting will take place between July 5 and August 9.
Service on the Board is challenging and interesting, and always meaningful. This is a great opportunity to learn more about how the City’s pension fund works and have a hands-on role in helping ensure our continued success.
