July 12 at 4:30 CST is the deadline for candidates for five seats on the LASERS Board of Trustees election. Two seats are open for retirees, three for active members. Trustees serve four year terms. No trustee may serve more than three consecutive terms.
If you are interested in running for the board, you may obtain a nominating petition from your agency’s Human Resources, the LASERS website, www.lasersonline.org, or by calling LASERS at 225.922.0600 in Baton Rouge or 800.256.3000.
A potential candidate must submit this official petition bearing the names and signatures of at least 25 active or retired members of LASERS, depending on whether they are running for an active or retired member seat. For purposes of verification, each signature must be accompanied by the last four digits of the signatory’s Social Security number.
