2016 Executive and Employee Trustee Elections

June 30, 2016

In November, IMRF will conduct two trustee elections:

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 message, or by calling an IMRF Member Services Representative at 1-800-ASK-IMRF (275-4673) Monday through Friday, 7:30 AM to 5:30 PM.

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.
