Welcome NYSTRS Delegates

The 2015 Annual Delegates Meeting will be held Sunday, Nov. 1 and Monday, Nov. 2 in Saratoga Springs.

Delegates are active NYSTRS members elected to represent their co-workers at the System's Annual Delegates Meeting, held each fall. A delegate's primary responsibility at the meeting is to elect a teacher member to the Retirement Board.

For more information about the election process, roles and responsibilities, refer to Electing & Reporting Retirement System Delegates.
