General Memo 614


Executive Trustee Election

June 30, 2011

This fall IMRF employers will elect one Executive Trustee for a five-year term. The five-year term of office will run from January 1, 2012, through December 31, 2016.

You can obtain information on nominating procedures, qualifications, sample petitions, and a biographical questionnaire by visiting the Board of Trustees area of the IMRF website, by sending us a secure electronic message or, by calling an IMRF Member Services Representative at 1-800-ASK-IMRF (1-800-275-4673).

Public Act 93-615, the State Officials and Employees Ethics Act, includes prohibitions against political activity during work hours. It is our opinion that these prohibitions do not apply to elections for the IMRF Board of Trustees. Gathering signatures and other activities of running for the IMRF Board are not included in prohibited political activity regulated by the Act.
