One2017 Executive Trustee election voting authority
IMRF employers will elect one Executive Trustee for a five-year term this fall. The five-year term of office will run from January 1, 2018, through December 31, 2022.
Authorized Agents may cast a ballot in an Executive Trustee election provided they have been given authority by their governing body. If an Authorized Agent does not have voting authority, as indicated on Form 2.20, "Notice of Appointment of Authorized Agent" on file, and the governing body would like to grant a person authority to participate in IMRF elections, IMRF needs to receive a new Form 2.20.
IMRF mailed election ballots and candidate biographies to Authorized Agents or governing bodies (as appropriate) on October 11, 2017. Completed ballots must be received by IMRF's Springfield or Oak Brook office by 4:30 PM (CST), December 12, 2017.
Refer to the 2017 Board Elections page of IMRF's website for additional election information.
