Nominations Open for 2013 LASERS Board of Trustees Election

Every two years, LASERS members are asked to cast their ballots for candidates for the 13-member Board of Trustees. 2013 is an election year, with five seats on the Board up for a vote. Nominations opened March 1 and will close July 9. Votes will be cast in September and October and the results certified by the Board and published in November. 

Four open seats must be filled by active members. One of the four seats up for election will be to fill the remaining two years of a vacancy, with that term expiring in 2014. Retirees will cast their vote for one position. If you are interested in running for the board, you can download a nominating petition on this page. You can also obtain the document from your agency’s Human Resources Office, or by calling LASERS.

Trustees serve four year terms unless they are filling an un-expired portion of a term. No Trustee may serve more than three consecutive terms.
