UC staff interested in running for one of two open seats on the University of California Retirement System (UCRS) Advisory Board have until May 6 to apply for nomination.
The advisory board meets three times a year to discuss issues of interest to UCRS members, retirees and beneficiaries, and shares its opinions on these issues with UC President Mark G. Yudof.
The nomination application requires submission of at least 50 signatures of eligible voters for the election; so don't wait until the last minute to gather your nomination materials. Complete information about the nomination process is available on the UCRS Advisory Board election website and at local benefits offices.
To qualify for the ballot, staff must be active members of the University of California Retirement Plan (UCRP). They may not be members of the Academic Senate or Office of the President employees involved in making UCRS policy, providing legal advice about UCRS or working in Internal Audit.
Candidates will be announced in mid-May, and an online election will be held from May 23 to June 17.
