Board of Trustees

SPTRFA is governed by a 10-member Board of Trustees that serves as a fiduciary to our members and beneficiaries. Nine of the ten board members are elected by the membership for staggered three-year terms.  One ex-officio board member is appointed by the St. Paul Public Schools School Board.

Three board members are elected each year at the Annual Meeting of the Members.
