Published March 1, 2023


The New York State Teachers’ Retirement System (NYSTRS) will hold their Annual Meeting of Delegates in October or November 2023. As a participating institution, the University at Buffalo is eligible to elect one delegate to attend this meeting.

Delegate Responsibilities

Delegates have two main functions:

  1. To elect a teacher member to the Retirement Board at the Annual Delegates Meeting.
  2. To serve as a liaison between NYSTRS and the delegate’s peers who are also NYSTRS members.

Participation in the delegate election is voluntary and not required.

Only active members of NYSTRS who are working in a full-time capacity may participate as a delegate. All faculty members that participate in NYSTRS may nominate themselves or a peer to serve as a delegate. The candidate who receives the most votes will serve as the primary delegate for UB and the candidate who receives the second most votes will serve as the alternate delegate.

How To Participate In the Election

The election will close June 1, 2023 at midnight. Election results will be communicated to NYSTRS participants via their buffalo.edu email address following the close of the election.
