Sonoma County Board of Supervisors will appoint seven members, none of whom are members or beneficiaries of the County pension system. A diverse set of perspectives is desired – including, but not limited to, age, stage in working life, culture or ethnicity, gender, educational achievement, profession, and income level. Ideal committee members will have the ability and commitment to listen and weigh information with an open mind, engage and fully participate in the development of recommendations, and bring professional skills and expertise and\or the ability to articulate a perspective from their experience which represents the diversity of our community. Since much of the information related to pension systems is of a financial nature, demonstrated aptitude in dealing with financial information will be very helpful. In the event that the Board of Supervisors is unable to find seven individuals to serve on this committee in a timely manner, they may constitute this committee with only five members.
