Every 3 years, according to the rules of the Fund, members (via their member representatives) are entitled to elect member representative trustees from a list of industry specialists that are independent from the sponsor. These member representative trustees have the knowledge, training and independence to protect members against any possible conflict of interest.
2015 is an election year, and this process is well underway having already received a number of applications. A selection committee will short-list the applicants, taking into account qualifications, knowledge and experience. The CVs of the short-listed applicants will be distributed to all Joint Forums and then the member-elected representatives at each Joint Forum (maximum two) may vote for their preferred candidates. Look out for the election communication that will come your way soon.
