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 10th term as president.
"Once again, I'm humbled by the trust my colleagues have placed in me and I appreciate their faith in my leadership," said Feckner. "This is an exciting time at CalPERS, as many of the reforms we've made in the last few years are starting to bear fruit. There's still much work to do, but I'm confident that we will continue to improve our ability to provide retirement and health security to the public employees who serve our state."
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.
