OPERS Board of Trustees

The OPERS Board of Trustees — the governing body of the system — is responsible for the administration and management of OPERS. The board meets monthly to review and formulate policies concerning the members, contributors and benefit recipients of OPERS, and the OPERS office staff.

The board members also authorize the investments made with the system's funds. They receive no compensation for their service to OPERS, but they are reimbursed for necessary expenses incurred while serving the system.
