Nominations for Annual TVARS Election

TVARS will accept nominations through Monday, July 13, for a three-year term as an elected member of the TVARS Board of Directors.  The term will run from November 1, 2015, through October 31, 2018.  Any employee who is a TVARS member is eligible to run for election.

The TVARS Board consists of seven members:  three appointed by TVA, three elected by employees who are TVARS members, and one who is selected by the other six.  Serving on the TVARS Board requires a substantial amount of time.  The board meets quarterly and also has special called meetings throughout the year.  Each director also serves on various committees that require a considerable amount of time to collaborate with other directors, study, and prepare for meetings.

Nominations are made by petition.  Signatures of 25 employees who are TVARS members are required.  The required form of the nominating petition must be used.  Nominating petitions are also available by calling Retirement at 865-632-2672.

Deadline for receipt of nominations:  The nominating petition and supporting candidate information must be received by the TVA Retirement System by 4:45 p.m. EDT on July 13.  Nominations may be submitted by e-mail (adshepherd@tva.gov), fax (865-632-8591), or mail (TVA Retirement System, 400 W. Summit Hill Drive, WT 8A, Knoxville, TN 37902).

See the TVARS Director Election/Selection Policy and Governance Policy for more details on election procedures and the responsibilities of TVARS board directors.
