Board of Trustees

TRS is administered by an 11-member Board of Trustees, each of whom serves as a fiduciary on members’ behalf. Two, the education commissioner and the state treasurer, serve by reason of their office. Two, who are required to have investment experience, are appointed by the governor. The remaining trustees are elected by TRS members to staggered four-year terms. Kentucky law requires that four trustees be active members, one trustee be a retired member and two trustees be from outside the teaching profession. Day-to-day operations are led by the executive secretary hired by the board.

State law requires the board to meet on the third Mondays of March, June, September and December. In 2024, those meetings will begin at 12:30 p.m. (unless noted otherwise on the published agenda) on March 18, June 17, Sept. 16 and Dec. 16. Meetings are held in the boardroom of the Teachers’ Retirement System, 479 Versailles Rd., Frankfort, Kentucky, 40601, or by teleconference if indicated on the agenda.
