NYSTRS' Annual Delegates Meeting returns to the Saratoga Springs City Center Sunday, Nov. 5—Monday, Nov. 6. We look forward to seeing our delegates and their alternates there this fall!

The agenda is packed with educational presentations about NYSTRS' benefits and the strength and stability of the pension system. Delegates will learn about "The Role of the Delegate," and the "Retirement Quest!" game show is not to be missed. The meeting also includes our popular Delegate-Board/Staff Discussion and the election of an active teacher Board member. Elizabeth A. Chetney, a teacher in the Baldwinsville Central School District, is the incumbent up for re-election this year to serve the 2024-2027 term.

Here's what you need to know about the meeting:

Have a question for our Delegate-Board/Staff Discussion? Send it to us at by 4 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 13, 2023. While we will accept questions during the session, we encourage you to submit your question in advance. (Only delegates may submit questions.)

We hope to see you in person but, if necessary, you will be able to attend virtually with access to all presentations and the Board member election.

Teacher Trustee Election

As noted above, Ms. Chetney is the incumbent for the election of the teacher trustee on NYSTRS’ Board. As such, she is automatically on the ballot; it is NOT necessary to submit a nomination form for her. Nominations for other teacher Board member candidates will be accepted by using this form. The deadline for nominations is 4 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 29, 2023. Only forms completed in full and submitted electronically will be accepted. Nominations will not be accepted after Friday, Sept. 29 and cannot be made on the day of the election. Only delegates are eligible to participate in the election and nominating process.
