The League of Minnesota Cities Board of Directors is seeking an elected or appointed city official to fill one opening on the League of Minnesota Cities Insurance Trust Board of Trustees. The appointment will fill the remainder of a term expiring on March 31, 2019, with eligibility to serve up to four additional three-year terms.
Members of the Board of Trustees are appointed by the League Board of Directors. Trustees must be from a city that is a participating member in the Trust. One of the seven trustees must be the League’s executive director, at least two must be elected officials, and at least one trustee must also be a member of the League Board of Directors.
The Board of Trustees is the governing body of the Trust. The Board’s responsibilities include business such as:
The Trust Board typically meets six to eight times per year and annually for a strategic planning retreat in February or March. This year’s retreat will be held Feb. 5-6, 2019 in White Bear Lake and the new Trustee will be encouraged to attend, if available.
The Trust reimburses trustees for travel expenses to attend meetings. In addition, trustees who are not compensated by their home city for time spent attending Trust Board meetings are eligible for a $100 per diem payment for each meeting day.
The League Board recognizes the importance of maintaining a Trust Board that is representative of the Trust membership. To achieve this, in addition to evaluating the skill and competencies of prospective candidates, the League Board tries if possible to achieve balance by weighing each candidate’s geographical location, size of city, gender, race, city position, League experience and involvement, and positions held in other organizations.
