The advisory board meets three times a year to discuss issues of interest to UCRS members, retirees and beneficiaries, and shares its opinions on these issues with the president of the university.

To qualify for the ballot, staff must be active members of the University of California Retirement Plan (UCRP) or active participants in Savings Choice in the UC Defined Contribution Plan who are not members of the Academic Senate. Office of the President employees involved in making UCRS policy or providing legal advice about UCRS and employees in Internal Audit are not eligible to run.

Candidates must also submit a signed background information sheet that includes a candidate statement, a nomination petition with at least 50 valid signatures from active UCRP members or Savings Choice participants who are not members of the Academic Senate, and a signed rules of campaign conduct form.

Nomination materials in both English and Spanish may be downloaded from a special UCRS Advisory Board election website that is accessible through UCnet. They are also available at local Benefits offices.

In mid-May, a list of qualified candidates and their statements will be posted at the UCRS Advisory Board election website.

All active, eligible UCRP members or Savings Choice participants who are not part of the Academic Senate will then elect two candidates to sit on the board for a four-year term. The online election will be conducted by Election-America, from May 20 through June 17.

Election-America is a leading full-service election management company. For over 10 years, it has managed complex elections nationally and serviced tens of millions of voters.

Final election results will be posted at the website by the end of June.
