TEACHERS' PENSION AND ANNUITY FUND (TPAF)
The Board of Trustees of the TPAF recently adopted N.J.A.C. 17:3-1.4, which sets forth the procedure for the election of a member-trustee.
2014 ELECTION RESULTS
Since only one candidate, Martha Liebman, from Mercer County, registered for the position, the Board of Trustees of the TPAF is pleased to announce that in accordance with N.J.A.C. 17:3-1.4, Martha Liebman from Mercer County was elected to represent Group C for a three-year term commencing on January 1, 2014.
2015 TRUSTEE POSITION
The current election is to fill a trustee position from Group A, for a three-year term commencing on January 1, 2015. Group A consists of Bergen, Essex, Hudson, and Union counties.
Names of those who wish to become a candidate for this position must be a resident of the State of New Jersey and must be employed in or retired from one of the counties listed above in Group A. Written letters of interest for this position will be accepted by the Secretary of the TPAF Board no later than February 1, 2014.
Please remember to register with your respective county for the 2015 election of a member-trustee. It is IMPORTANT for the counties to continue to annually submit the names of delegates and alternates should the need arise to conduct a vote for a trustee position. Eligibility is determined by where you worked — not your residence; therefore, the county contact will be based on the county where you are currently employed or your school district at the time you retired. If you are interested to being a delegate/alternate for the 2015 election of a member-trustee, contact your respective County Superintendent’s Office. Information on the selection of the delegates/alternates should be available with your respective County Superintendent’s Office on or about March 2014.
