Are you interested in serving as a Trustee on the COAERS Board? We are gearing up for the upcoming COAERS Active Member Election for Places 6 & 7 to be held in December 2019. Currently, Place #6 is held by Michael Benson, and Place #7 is held by Amy Hunter. Their terms expire December 2019. The new term will begin January 2020 and continue through December 2023.
To be an eligible candidate, you must be an active member currently contributing to COAERS and not on a leave of absence. Please know that employees currently employed by Austin Energy and Public Works departments cannot run in this election since these departments are currently represented on the Board.

Completed applications must be returned to the COAERS Office before 5:00 p.m. on Friday, September 6, 2019.
A Candidates Training Workshop will be held on Friday, September 20, 2019 to inform candidates of Trustee duties and responsibilities. Candidates may withdraw their application after the session if they are unable to make the necessary commitments.
