DOL Seeks Nominations for 2023 ERISA Advisory Council

The U.S. Department of Labor’s Employee Benefits Security Administration is seeking nominations to fill five, three-year term positions on the Advisory Council on Employee Welfare and Pension Benefit Plans, known as the ERISA Advisory Council.

The ERISA Advisory Council provides advice on policies and regulations affecting employee benefit plans governed by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974. The Secretary of Labor appoints 15 members, who serve staggered three-year terms and represent specified groups and fields related to employee benefits. The council meets at least four times a year and makes recommendations to the Secretary regarding functions carried out under ERISA.

Nominations are being accepted for one vacancy each in the fields of employers, employee organizations, the general public, insurance, and accounting. Interested persons or organizations may nominate qualified individuals for membership. Nominations should briefly describe the candidate's qualifications to serve on the council, the position (group or field) for which the candidate is being nominated and should state that the candidate will accept appointment to the council if offered.

Nominations should include the full name, work affiliation, mailing address, phone number and email address of both the candidate and the nominator. Nominations must be submitted by letter, resolution or petition and signed by the person or—in the case of a nomination by an organization—by the group's representative making the recommendation.

Nominations are due by October 3, 2022 and can be submitted by email to the EBSA Advisory Council’s Executive Secretary Christine Donahue at
