DOL Seeks 2010 ERISA Advisory Council Nominations

The 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 Sept. 15, 2009.

The Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) established the bipartisan council, which 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, actuarial counseling, investment counseling, 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, including contact information and indicating the candidate's acceptance of the appointment if offered.

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.
