In accordance with the Board of Retirement’s Election Procedures, four members of the Board are elected directly by the KCERA membership. General members vote for candidates to fill the Second Member and Third Member seats. Safety members vote to fill the Seventh Member seat. Retired members vote to fill the Eighth Member seat. (Safety and retired members also elect one alternate each.)
Elected trustees serve a three-year term, at the end of which is an election. Incumbent trustees may choose to run for another term as long as they continue to meet the eligibility requirements of the board seat. When a candidate runs unopposed (i.e., no one else applies), that person is said to be “appointed in lieu of an election.”
