DOL Solicits Nominations for 2017 ERISA Advisory Council

Issued by: Employee Benefits Security Administration [EBSA], U.S. Department of Labor

Date: July 15, 2016

WASHINGTON, July 14, 2016 Ė The U.S. Department of Laborís Employee Benefits Security Administration is soliciting nominations to fill five, three-year vacancies on the Advisory Council on Employee Welfare and Pension Benefit Plans, also known as the ERISA Advisory Council. The deadline to submit nominations is Aug 1.

The 15-member council provides advice on policies and regulations affecting employee benefit plans governed by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act. The secretary of labor appoints members for staggered three-year terms. Members represent specified groups or fields that are involved in employee benefits.

The council meets at least four times a year and makes recommendations to the secretary regarding functions carried out under ERISA. Participation in the councilís meetings and other work generally requires a commitment of at least 15 to 20 days per year.

EBSA will accept nominations to fill one vacancy in each of the following five fields:

  • Employee organizations
  • Accounting
  • Employers
  • The general public
  • Insurance
Interested individuals and organizations may nominate qualified candidates for membership.

Nominations should briefly describe the individualís qualifications, and the group or field the candidate represents. Nominations should also include the nomineeís full name, work affiliation, mailing address, phone number and email address. The nomination should also state that, if offered, the candidate would accept the appointment to the ERISA council. Nominations must be submitted by letter, resolution or petition, and be signed by the person or, in the case of a nomination by an organization, by the groupís representative making the recommendation. Additionally, each nomination must include the nominating partyís full name, mailing address, phone number and email address. Please do not include any information that you do not want publicly disclosed.

Send nominations by email to Larry Good, Executive Secretary, ERISA Advisory Council, at good.larry@dol.gov. The nomination must be a separate attachment to the email.
