Who serves on MCERA's Boards?
MCERA's Board of Retirement (BOR) is composed of nine members, an alternate member, and an alternate retired member. Four seats on the Board are appointed by the Board of Supervisors, two seats are elected by MCERA Miscellaneous members, one seat is elected by active safety members, and another is elected by retired members.

The alternate member is elected by safety members; retirees elect the alternate retired member. The County Treasurer and Tax Collector, an ex-officio member, is required by California law to serve on the Retirement Boards. Visit our Board Members page.
