CalPERS Board re-elects Feckner as president
Former Association President Rob Feckner was unanimously re-elected as president of the California Public Employees’ Retirement System (CalPERS) Board of Administration. He will be serving his 11th term as president.
“I’m humbled to be once again elected by my peers to lead the CalPERS Board,” said Feckner. “I look forward to another term working on behalf of our members to ensure their fund continues to be sustainable for generations to come. In the past few years we have many accomplishments to be proud of but there’s still much more to do to ensure we provide secure retirement and health benefits to California’s hard-working public employees.”
Feckner joined the CalPERS Board as the representative of CalPERS school members in 1999. He also chairs the Board Governance committee, and is a member of the Investment, Pension and Health Benefits, and Risk and Audit committees. As CalPERS Board president, he oversees the board’s business, sets meeting schedules and agendas with input from other Board Members and Executive Staff, makes appointments to board committees and represents CalPERS to outside parties.
Feckner, a glazing specialist with Napa Valley Unified School District, served as CSEA’s Association President for two terms (2005-2009). As Association President, Feckner championed healthcare reform and oversaw the establishment of CSEA’s Humanitarian Fund. He also encouraged members to volunteer their time and get involved in their local communities.
