2019 Employee Trustee Election

June 28, 2019

In November, active members of IMRF will elect one Employee Trustee for a five-year term. The five-year term will run from January 1, 2020, through December 31, 2024.

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 IMRF’s employer-only number, 1-800-728-7971, 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.
