Two Retirement Board Seats Up for Election in 2018

In spring 2018, STRS Ohio will hold an election for two contributing member seats on the State Teachers Retirement Board. Mark Hill and Dale Price currently hold the contributing member seats.

The election process begins in November 2017, when individuals interested in running for the seat can request petitions from STRS Ohio. Those eligible for nomination for the contributing member seat are individuals presently contributing to STRS Ohio, those who have contributions on deposit with STRS Ohio and disability benefit recipients. STRS Ohio retirees who are reemployed in an STRS Ohio-covered position are not eligible for nomination for these seats.

Individuals interested in running for these seats can request petitions from STRS Ohio beginning on Nov. 3, 2017, by calling toll-free 888‑227‑7877. The deadline for returning petitions is Feb. 23, 2018. STRS Ohio members will receive their ballots and voting information in April; they will have through May 7 to cast their vote. The winners of the election will begin their four-year term on the board on Sept. 1, 2018.
