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.
Winners of this year’s election were announced at the SPTRFA Annual (virtual) Meeting of the Members on March 16th at 4:00 PM CDT. Congratulations to Maggi Schiller, Mike McKay, and Gene Ward, Jr., who were each elected to serve a three-year term on the SPTRFA Board of Trustees. Thank you to all our members who voted!
