The Board of Directors and Officers

No more than forty-nine percent (49%) of the persons serving on the Board may be “interested persons.” In addition to the criteria set forth in Welfare and Institutions Code §4626 and Title 17 of the California Code of Regulations §54520 an interested person is (a) any person compensated by the Corporation for services rendered to it within the previous twelve (12) months, whether as a full-time or part-time employee, independent contractor, or otherwise, excluding any reasonable compensation paid to a director as director, and (b) any brother, sister, ancestor, descendant, spouse, brother-in-law, sister-in-law, son-in-law, daughter-in-law, mother-in-law, or father-in-law of such person. However, any violation of this section shall not affect the validity or enforceability of transactions entered into by the Corporation. Furthermore, former employees of the Corporation who are retired must be separated for at least six (6) months before becoming eligible for Board membership. Former employees receiving CalPERS retirement benefits based on employment by the Corporation are eligible to serve on the Board of Directors, and must not vote on any matters concerning retirement benefits.
