Board Oversight

Next Board Meeting

A seven-member board of directors is composed of Colorado residents who are elected by participants, county commissioners and municipal and political subdivision employers. The Board oversees the operation of our association.

The Colorado Retirement Association, formerly Colorado County Officials and Employees Retirement Association, Board of Directors has full and complete control and management of the CRA retirement plan. They are allowed by state statute to make all necessary rules and regulations for managing and discharging its duties, for its own government and procedure in so doing, and for the preservation and protection of any funds.

The CRA chairman and vice-chairman are elected by a majority vote of the board members, at the meeting subsequent to the first quarter for a one-year term. It is currently the policy of the Board of Directors that the vice-chairman automatically becomes the chairman in the year following their election as vice-chairman.

The retirement plan adopted by the board provides for a director, who is hired by the board and is referred to as “Executive Director.” Also, the Board reviews operational expenditures at each board meeting, in addition to reviewing the annual audit and considering the admission of and vote on new participating entities.

The Board has regular meetings at least once per quarter – currently it meets most months – and holds special meetings as necessary.
