STRS Ohio will fill the vacant retired member seat on the State Teachers Retirement Board in accordance with the process outlined in the Ohio Revised Code and Ohio Administrative Code. Each board member may nominate one eligible retiree candidate for consideration by July 31, 2021. The board will then elect the new retiree member in public voting at the August Retirement Board meeting. The nominee who is elected will serve through Aug. 31, 2022. An election for this retiree seat will be held in the spring of 2022, with ballots being sent to retired members of the system. The successful candidate in that election will serve a new four-year term (Sept. 1, 2022–Aug. 31, 2026).
