DOL Seeks Nominations for 2009 ERISA Advisory Council

The U.S. Department of Labor is soliciting nominations to fill five three-year vacancies on the Advisory Council on Employee Welfare and Pension Benefit Plans, known as the ERISA Advisory Council. The deadline for receipt of nominations is Aug. 31, 2008.

Established by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA), the bipartisan council consists of 15 members appointed by the secretary of labor to represent specified groups and fields that are involved in employee benefits. The council meets four times a year and makes recommendations to the secretary regarding functions carried out under ERISA.

Nominations are being accepted for one vacancy each to represent the fields of employee organizations, employers, corporate trust, investment management, and the general public.

Interested persons or organizations may nominate qualified persons for membership. Recommendations must be submitted by letter, resolution, or petition and signed by the person or, in the case of a nomination by an organization, by an official representative of the group making the recommendation.

Nominations should briefly describe the candidate's qualifications and the group or field for which the candidate is being nominated, include contact information, and provide the candidate's availability to serve on the council. Attendance and participation in the council's meetings and other work has historically resulted in a commitment of 15 to 20 days per year.

Nominations should be submitted to Larry Good, executive secretary, ERISA Advisory Council, Room N-5623, U.S. Department of Labor, 200 Constitution Ave. N.W., Washington, D.C. 20210.
