Deferred Compensation Advisory Committee
Committee Duties
The Deferred Compensation Advisory Committee comprises seven members serving four year terms. The committee administers the Deferred Compensation Plan, the trust account and is responsible for the operation of the plan in accordance with the terms of the plan. The committee is required to determine all questions arising out of the administration, interpretation and application of the plan and the trust including evaluating and selecting investment options.

The committee has the authority to enter into agreements on behalf of the City for the administration of the plan, for custodial agreements for funds, and for investments under the plan. The committee has broad authority in the administration of the City’s deferred compensation plans. However, that authority must be exercised within the limitations imposed by the plan and within the requirements of the applicable fiduciary standards.

Member Qualifications & Information
Each member must be a participant of the Deferred Compensation Plan for at least one year prior to selection or appointment and remain a participant throughout his or her term of office. There is no compensation for the members of the Deferred Compensation Advisory Committee. However, from time to time, committee members may be reimbursed for some expenses incurred on City business.

Political Reform Act
The Conflict of Interest Section of the Political Reform Act applies to the Deferred Compensation Advisory Committee. Committee members are required to file a Statement of Economic Interests (Form 700).

Two members are appointed by the city manager, one member with experience in financial or benefits administration and one member-at-large. Five members are appointed by the city council. They are recommended for appointment by the employees: one member recommended by the “Management Employees”, one by the Police Officers’ Association, one by Firefighters Local 230, one by the employee organizations affiliated with American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees, AFSCME Local 101 (Municipal Employees Federation and Confidential Employees), and one by the trades organizations (Association of Building, Mechanical and Electrical Inspectors, ABMEI, International Union of Operating Engineers, OE 3, and International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 33, IBEW). 

Committee members are expected to attend all committee meetings. Members who have unexcused absences from any two consecutive regular meetings, or 25% of the meetings in a calendar year, are deemed to have resigned from the committee.
